Sergio Aguero contract: Manchester City set to offer striker contract extension worth an incredible £210,000-a-week
City are believed to be in talks to extend the stay of both Aguero and Vincent Kompany
Friday 08 August 2014
Sergio Aguero could be offered a staggering £210,000-a-week contract extension in effort to keep him out of the clutches of the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The City striker endured a frustrating season that was hampered by a number of injuries, but the Argentinian still played his part in helping City regain the Premier League title from rivals Manchester United as he scored an impressive 28 goal in 34 games.
Reports have emerged claiming City are ready to open negotiations with the 26-year-old to extend his stay at the Etihad Stadium, and a new deal for Aguero could coincide with an extension for club captain Vincent Kompany.
The Belgium international is set to be offered a salary in the region of £200,000, and it would see the reigning champions secure arguably their two most important players to new long-term deals.

City are also hopeful that contract extension can be negotiated with Edin Dzeko, Joe Hart and James Milner, although at this time talks are understood to be at a preliminary stage at best.
Milner is holding out on signing a new deal so he can get a feeling for whether he will see much first team action this season. The midfielder, who is crucial to City matching their home-grown player quota requirements, has been linked with a move to the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.
Dzeko has benefitted from the arrival of manager Manuel Pellegrini, having at one point looked to be on his way out of the Etihad following Roberto Mancini’s spell in charge. Dzeko was a transfer target for a number of club last summer, but Pellegrini showed faith in the Bosnian, and he repaid the Chilean manager with 16 league goals in 31 appearances.
