Manchester City have confirmed that Sergio Aguero has extended his contract until 2021. The 30-year-old’s original deal was due to expire in 2020 but his form this season has convinced Pep Guardiola to prolong his stay.
Aguero has been top scorer in all competitions every season for City since his 2011 arrival and said to City TV that he hopes to last ten years in total at the Etihad.
“I am happy for this additional year. My idea was being here for 10 years. I’ve been here for seven years, it’s going to be 10 when the contract expires. Hopefully, that’s going to happen. This was the main reason I signed,” he said.
Signed from Atletico Madrid seven years ago, the Argentine international has gone on to make 299 appearances in all competitions, scoring an incredible 204 goals. He’s City’s all-time top goalscorer and has netted an outstanding 146 goals in the Premier League.
Aguero, who boasts 39 goals in 89 games for the national team, has won three Premier League titles and three League Cups in England and helped the Sky Blues to 100 points in the top-flight last season.
There have been doubts about his suitability under Guardiola, but clearly the pair are happy to continue working together.
The prolific centre-forward currently has scored and created seven goals in all competitions. City are third in the Premier League with 13 points from five games, coming off the back of a 3-0 win over Fulham.
