Aguero con­sid­ers Man City exit

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

MANCH­ESTER CITY striker Ser­gio Aguero has said he could leave the club when his con­tract ends in 2019 to play for his boy­hood team In­de­pen­di­ente in Ar­gentina.

The Ar­gentina in­ter­na­tional ar­rived at City in 2011 from La Liga side Atletico Madrid, hav­ing started his pro­fes­sional ca­reer with the Buenos Aires-based club at the age of 15.

Dur­ing his six years at the Eti­had Sta­dium, the 29-year-old has been pro­lific in front of goal and re­cently sur­passed Eric Brook’s tally of 177 goals to be­come the club’s record scorer.

“It came out that Mi­lan and Real Madrid wanted me and — I don’t know where I read it — but they said, ‘They just spoiled In­de­pen­di­ente’s dream’,” Aguero told re­porters.

“But the idea was al­ways to go back to In­de­pen­di­ente when my con­tract with City runs out in 2019. I have an op­tion to ex­tend one more year with City, where it’s the pri­or­ity but it’s al­ways an op­tion.”

Aguero is cur­rently on in­ter­na­tional duty as Ar­gentina pre­pare for friendly games against Rus­sia on Satur­day and Nige­ria three days later. — Su­perS­port
