Sergio Aguero signs new Manchester City deal

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

The 24-year-old Argentine signed a five-year deal when he arrived from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and his new deal runs until 2017.

Aguero famously scored the injury-time goal against QPR which clinched City the 2011-12 Premier League title ahead of rivals Manchester United.

Aguero goals

  • Sergio Aguero scored 30 times in the 2011-12 title-winning season for Manchester City. He added another 17 in the following campaign as his side lost their Premier League crown to Man Utd.

Overall, he has scored 47 goals in 88 appearance for City.

Aguero had been linked with a move to Real Madrid but insisted the speculation was just rumours  and he has backed up his stance by signing the new deal.

"I'm very happy at City and I feel very appreciated," the City website quoted Aguero as saying recently.

"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. That always reminds me of our title and that goal against QPR.

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