Argentine international Sergio ‘kun’ Aguero has confirmed his plans to leave Manchester City at the end of his current contract and join home town club Independiente in 2019.
Aguero insists that there is no possibility of extending his time at the Etihad and after enjoying a successful career playing for Atletico Madrid and Manchester City he will resist the big lure to join Real Madrid who are keen on signing him for a return to back home.
Speaking on a radio station Independiente en la Uno, the 27-year-old revealed: “It is all set. I am going to retire at Independiente. My family knows, I will return as soon as I finish out my contract with Manchester City. Here they are already aware. They know that I want to return to Argentina. I am giving my word, from England, that I shall return to Avellaneda. I dream of playing with my brothers.
“Here at the club they are great with me, they always told me that they were open if the chance of a transfer arises. But where am I going to go in Europe?
“No, when I go, when my contract ends, I’m going to Argentina to play for El Rojo. From Manchester, straight to Avellaneda.”
Aguero has scored 138 goals in 193 appearances in all competitions since he joined Manchester City in 2011.
