“It has been said that I would go home if I won the Champions League,” the Argentine superstar began, in quotes as relayed by the Mirror.
“But I’m not going to go,” he continued—which will come as reassuring words for Citizens fans. “I have several years left here and the Champions League is getting closer.”
Indeed, while City remain firmly in the running for this year’s European Cup, having seen off Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals to set up a semi against Real Madrid, Aguero has hinted that even if the Citizens were to achieve the ultimate triumph this term, he’s in no rush to consider a future away from the north-west.
“I don’t know whether it will be this year or not, but the team is improving in Europe and it has always been the dream,” he continued. “We are growing and there will be a few more chances for me after this year.”
Aguero appears to have a taste for creating history with the Citizens, and having been arguably the decisive actor in the side that won the club’s first Premier League title in 2012, the South American frontman will surely be a key man if the Sky Blues are to win their maiden UCL title.
The attacker—who has scored 21 goals in 26 league outings for Manuel Pellegrini’s side this term—moved to the Etihad Stadium from Atletico Madrid in 2011, after five successful years with the capital club.
He began his career in his homeland with Independiente, and it would be little surprise if—like his compatriot and former City star Carlos Tevez—he returns to end his career in his homeland.
