Aguero signs new five-year contract with Manchester City

The Argentine has played a huge part in City's recent success and has vowed to fans he plans to deliver more memorable moments after committing his future to the club
Manchester City have confirmed that Sergio Aguero has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The Argentine striker put an end to speculation surrounding his immediate future at the Eithad by putting pen to paper on an new deal that will keep him at City until 2019.

The 26-year-old has been a firm fans' favourite since his move from Atletico Madrid in 2011, cementing his place in the club's folklore by scoring the stoppage time winner againt QPR that gave City their first ever Premier League title in 2012.

The forward has netted 75 goals in 122 appearances in all competitions and despite being linked with a move to Barcelona this transfer window, Aguero has moved to reassure fans that his future lies in England.

"The reality seems to be that ever since I came here, during every close season, there have always been rumours suggesting that I might be returning to Spain," Aguero told the club's official website.

"There has always been this speculation but I certainly never pay much attention to it.

"People hear this stuff flying around and they take it seriously but I can tell the fans and everyone at City to relax, I’m going to be here until I see out my contract.

"Each year, I aim to better the previous one. Last season was incredible but I’m not just satisfied with two Premier League titles, I want more and I can achieve them here alongside my teammates.

"This club is special; the fans, the stadium, the staff, the atmosphere, the new facility we’re moving into – everything!

"We have enjoyed lots of success and some incredible moments but the overall vision for the future and where we are going are the reasons why I wanted to stay here, to win trophies and to keep making history through my best years."
