Sergio Agüero set to stay at Manchester City amid Atletico Madrid interest – report

Manchester City will reject any offers from Atlético Madrid to re-sign Sergio Agüero this summer and have told the iconic Argentine that he is going nowhere, Simon Mullock of the Mirror reports.

Ambitious Atléti have been in contact with Sergio’s entourage and reports from Spain claim that he isn’t against the idea of a return to his former club.

The information from England is different, with the Mirror reporting that Agüero, who turns 30 in June, has told the club that he wishes to honour the last two years of his contract before returning to Argentina with Independiente.

City have no plans to sign a central striker of Agüero’s profile, with the only attacking recruit expected to be a winger who is capable of also playing through the middle.

Only a transfer request from Kun could alter City’s position, something very improbably given his reputation of being a perfect professional who has caused no problems during his years in Manchester.

Agüero has spent seven seasons at the Etihad Stadium since his move from Atlético in 2011, scoring 199 goals in all competitions. He will have to wait until next season to reach the big 200 landmark, with injury having ruled him out of action until the World Cup.
