The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern are relieved after hearing the reassuring news from Simon Mullock in The Mirror that claims Sergio Aguero has been told he is going nowhere. The striker has apparently told the club that he plans to honour the last two years of his contract, despite interest from Atletico Madrid to bring him back to the Spanish capital.

Sergio Aguero will go down in history as Manchester City’s best ever player. The Argentine is the Citizens record goalscorer with 199 strikes in his seven years at the club. Prior to his career at The Etihad, Aguero had spent an incredibly successful five years in the Spanish capital with Atletico Madrid, winning the Europa League as one of the club’s star players.
Since he moved to Manchester he’s bolstered his trophy cabinet over his seven-year spell on the blue side of the city, winning three Premier League titles, three League cups and an FA Cup, making him not only the club’s record scorer but also one of their most decorated players. One day, the striker will make a return to Atletico to play at their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium, although Pep Guardiola has made it clear that he sees Aguero staying in England and that he has no plans to bring in a new central-striker.

Was never a doubt he will honour his contract and now it’s great to see Pep wanting him to stay as the main striker

Yes and when he's done at City, I want to see him go back to his boyhood club Independiente.

I wonder if that means Atletico will use 100m of Griezmann & move for Dybala. Simeone as an Argentine probably would like that. Not many good second strikers exist now a days anyway.
