Aguero considered summer return to Independiente

The Manchester City star was devastated when his former club were relegated from the top flight this year and admits he was tempted to help them out
Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero considered rejoining Independiente over the summer when his former club were relegated from the Argentine top flight.

The 25-year-old began his career with the Primera B Nacional side in his homeland before making the move to Europe with Atletico Madrid in 2006, five years before he joined City.

And the striker, who has four goals in six Premier League appearances so far this season, has now revealed that he pondered returning to Argentina prior to the start of the new campaign in a bid to restore his old team's status.

"I love Independiente and, when they were relegated, I even thought about moving back there," Aguero told The Sun.

"I wanted to help the club to go up again. I definitely thought about it but my agent told me City would have killed us if we had.

"I know my job is at City, I am just saying the thought passed my mind when Independiente went down.

"I've been very happy at City since the day I came but I'm definitely going to back Independiente in a few years as I want to finish my career there."
