LONDON, Sept 21: Manchester City�s record goalscorer Sergio Aguero extended his stay with the Premier League champions on Friday, signing an one-year contract extension.
The 30-year-old Argentina international � who broke the record last season and whose tally stands at 204 � put pen to paper on a deal that will see him through to the end of the 2021 season.
�I am happy for this additional year,� said Aguero in a club statement.
�My idea was being here for 10 years. I�ve been here for seven years, it�s going to be 10 when the contract expires.
�This was the main reason I signed. I�m very happy because they have treated me very well since the first day I got here.� Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City�s director of football, said Aguero � who has been left out at times by manager Pep Guardiola in the last two years for Brazilian Gabriel Jesus � retained his status as one of the club�s most pivotal players.
�We are delighted that Sergio is extending his stay at Manchester City,� said Begiristain.
�He has been so important to this club since his arrival in 2011 and he remains at the forefront of what we want to achieve in the coming years.
�We are fortunate to have had one of the best strikers in the world at our club for so many years.� � AFP
