The Gossiper


Manchester City and Argentine striker, Sergio Leonel Agüero del Castillo, colloquially known as Kun Agüero, is set to leave Manchester City this summer after he spent a decade with the club.

The club’s record goalscorer will exit the Etihad when his contract expires in the summer, the Premier League leaders confirmed. The Argentinian is out of contract in the summer and the club has confirmed that he will not sign a new deal.

Aguero, who joined City from Atletico Madrid in 2011, is sure to attract the interest of a number of top clubs with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain linked with potential moves for the 32-year-old.

With 257 goals from 384 appearances, Aguero is the club’s record goalscorer overtaking Eric Brook’s 78-year record in 2017, and City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak confirmed a statue of him has been commissioned.

Aguero also provided the most iconic moment in the history of the club – and possibly the Premier League – when his last-minute winner against QPR in the final game of the 2012 season secured the title from Manchester United on goal difference.

He is the highest-scoring overseas player in Premier League history – and fourth overall – and has won 10 major trophies during his time at the Etihad Stadium, including four Premier League titles.
