Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has signed a new five-year contract with the Premier League champions and will earn around £150 000 per week.
The news of Aguero’s extension until 2019 are the latest in a week full of good, but expensive deals, for the Citizens.
First they signed Eliquim Mangala for £32 million, then David Silva and Vincent Kompany had already extended their contracts, and Aguero revealed why City are able to keep their star players.
“The reality seems to be that ever since I came here, during every close season, there have always been rumours suggesting that I might be returning to Spain,” he told the club’s official website.
“There has always been this speculation but I certainly never pay much attention to it.
“People hear this stuff flying around and they take it seriously but I can tell the fans and everyone at City to relax, I’m going to be here until I see out my contract.
Auguero, who arrived in 2012 for £ 36 million from Atletico Madrid, has scored 75 goals in 122 appearances for City, averaging a Premier League goal every 116 minutes.
“Each year, I aim to better the previous one. Last season was incredible but I’m not just satisfied with two Premier League titles, I want more and I can achieve them here alongside my teammates,” he added.
“This club is special; the fans, the stadium, the staff, the atmosphere, the new facility we’re moving into – everything.
“We have enjoyed lots of success and some incredible moments but the overall vision for the future and where we are going are the reasons why I wanted to stay here, to win trophies and to keep making history through my best years.”
Aguero’s most important City goal was the injury-time winner against QPR in 2012, which secured the club's first Premier League title in 44 years. Overall, the 26-year-old has won two Premier League titles, one League Cup and the Community Shield since his arrival.
