Sergio Aguero is unhappy with how he perceives Pep Guardiola is treating him, according to reports by Sam Lee of Goal, Jonathan Smith of ESPN and Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail.
Aguero is unhappy again.
– same as last season
– doesn’t feel Guardiola respects him
– Khaldoon told him things would change in LA (big)
– Aguero decided things haven’t changed
– Pep says he wants Aguero to stay and has no problem with him, but SA doesn’t sense that

Aguero disillusioned under Guardiola with City future in the balance https://t.co/B7KMmylZM3

Aguero is being rotated regularly with Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus, but it is claimed that he is concerned about his future at the club, with Guardiola often preferring Jesus in big games this season.
Sam Lee states that notable exclusions have led to Kun feeling that he is being treated unfairly by Pep. There was a similar situation last season, with chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak having to personally intervene.
Problems have resurfaced, with Aguero said to believe that Guardiola is using ‘any opportunity possible’ to drive him out of the door – despite the City boss saying otherwise, and even claiming that Aguero is his son’s favourite player.
Those close to Guardiola insist that the Catalan coach has no problem with City’s all-time leading scorer, and say Aguero is prone to mood swings when left out of starting lineups.
One of the reasons City don’t plan to move for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez in January is because Pep is happy with his two No.9s, Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
These stories come after a Spanish journalist named Jose Alvarez Haya first reported that Aguero had been playing injured for months – since confirmed by English journalists – and also stated that the 29-year-old is becoming disillusioned at the Etihad – which is now also being backed up.
Kun Agüero could leave Manchester City really soon. He loves a lot the club and their fans but he is not valued by the coach. He is the second best rated scoring goals per minute played in PL (101 minutes per goal). Real Madrid could be a potential destiny for him.

Could this be the final season at Manchester City for the club legend?
