Striker admits he thought of moving on.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted that he considered making a return to Argentina this summer in order to turn out for his first love Independiente, Sky Sports reports.
Aguero came through the youth ranks at the Avellaneda outfit, and it is where he made a name for himself before securing his big money move to Europe with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in 2006.
Independiente succumbed to a surprise relegation last season, much like River Plate did the year before, and Aguero has confessed that thought to returning to help them back into the top flight were in his mind, but ultimately any notion of a move was snuffed out early on.
“I love Independiente and when they were relegated I even thought about moving back there,” he 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.”
Aguero added that although he is perfectly happy at the Etihad Stadium, he has ambitions to end his career back at his former club in the future.
“I’ve been very happy at City since the day I came,” he said. “But I’m definitely going to back Independiente, in a few years as I want to finish my career there.”
