Aguero Pens New Deal

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has committed his future to the club by signing a one-year extension to his contract.

The Argentina international was linked with the likes of Real Madrid after some superb performances for the Citizens, but the English Premier League side has cooled interest by giving the player a new deal.

A statement on the clubs official website read: "Sergio Aguero has underlined his commitment to Manchester City with a one-year extension to his contract, which now runs until 2017.

"Club record signing Aguero joined City from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and wrote his name into the Blues’ history books by scoring the winning goal against QPR that sealed the 2011/12 Premier League title.

"The 24-year-old has become a crowd idol during his first two seasons at the Etihad Stadium and has scored 47 goals from just 69 starts for City."

The player was quoted as saying, “I'm very happy at City and I feel very appreciated. It's been barely two years since I've arrived and sometimes I feel like I've been here for all my life.

“I have a fantastic relationship with the fans, and that always reminds me of our title and that goal against QPR. I can never forget that moment.

“Now I am looking forward to next season and pushing hard to win the title again.”

City have recently given new deals to Gael Clichy, Yaya Tour and David Silva as they prepare for next season.
