Manchester City star striker Sergio Aguero has announced that he will return home to play for Argentinian side

Club Atlético Independiente

once his contract ends in 2019. 

The Argentinian has been a pivotal factor in City’s success in the last five years. Aguero signed for the Sky Blues in 2011, the same year that City won their first English Premier League title in 68 years, 

“It’s clear to me that when my contract ends, after the World Cup [in Russia in 2018], I’m going to Independiente,” Agüero told radio station El Rojo En La Uno.

“Here at the club they are great with me, they always told me that they were open if the chance of a transfer arises. But where am I going to go in Europe?“No, when I go, when my contract ends, I’m going to Argentina to play for El Rojo. From Manchester, straight to Avellaneda.”

Aguero’s aim is to become the greatest goalscorer ever at Manchester City. He is only 50 short of City legend Eric Brook’s famous goal tally of 178 goals.

The Argentinian’s heart lies with his childhood club, where he made his professional début at only 15 years old. 

Aguero made his name at Independiente, becoming the youngest player to ever wear the red shirt. 

The striker quickly developed into a goalscoring machine, resulting in his selection for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2005, which Argentina won.
