Argentina international Sergio Aguero has stressed that he is content to remain at Manchester City for the remainder of his contract. The 29-year-old has been with the Citizens since the summer of 2011, and he broke the club's all-time scoring record earlier this campaign after he surpassed Eric Brook's goal tally.
Aguero netted the third goal during the Citizens' 3-1 win over Watford in midweek, and shortly after the game, he expressed his intention to remain at the club until 2020 at the least, he said: "I have until 2020, I think. The truth is that I hope to see out my contract and I'll try to do my best from here until the end of the season, and after that we will see what happens with me. For me, yes. Obviously, my plan is not to change clubs. The truth is I'm very happy here but, as always, as I said before, the club has the last word."
The Argentine initially found himself playing second fiddle to Gabriel Jesus this campaign, and this led to suggestion that he is unsettled in Manchester. However, as the season has gone along, he has become a regular in the centre-forward position which he is likely to cement with Jesus sidelined with a long-term knee problem.
Despite the lack of sufficient striking options, City have cruised through the first-half of the season with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne contributing towards the club's goal tally. The Citizens are currently 15 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United on the table, and they look good value to hold onto the lead in the second-half of the campaign unless fatigue creeps through the squad.
City will now shift their focus towards a FA Cup third round tie versus Burnley after which they have a two-legged League Cup Bristol City sandwiched between Premier League fixtures. Pep Guardiola has complained about the need to protect players in the packed schedule, and he is likely to ring in the changes in the coming weeks.
