The Argentine striker opened the scoring against Bournemouth on Saturday to hit the milestone amid talk he's unhappy with life under Pep Guardiola

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero scored his 100th goal at the Etihad Stadium amid rumours his time at the club is coming to an end.

The Argentina international headed home a Fernandinho cross to give City a 27th-minute lead over Bournemouth on Saturday. That strike gave Aguero a century of goals in all competitions at the Etihad since he joined the club from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

And Aguero got his 101st goal in the 79th minute, scoring City's third of the evening in what ended up being a 4-0 thrashing of the Cherries.

Goal reported on Friday that Aguero is again discontent with life under Pep Guardiola at City, with the striker feeling his past achievements and efforts to adapt his game over the past year are being taken for granted.

Aguero could leave the Premier League leaders as soon as the January transfer window, with Real Madrid monitoring his situation, according to Marca.

The 29-year-old, who became City's all-time leading goalscorer in November, has recorded 15 goals in 20 matches this season while sharing minutes up top with up-and-coming Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus.
