Sergio Aguero exit from Manchester City: Argentina international plays down transfer speculation
Striker has been linked with return to Spain
Manchester City will have been relieved to hear Sergio Aguero confirm he will be remaining with the Premier League champions next season.
Speculation has been rife that the Argentina international, who played in the World Cup match against Bosia-Herzegovina last night, will return to Spain.
The former Atletico Madrid striker has been linked with both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
However, Aguero told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope: "There's lots of talk about Real Madrid and Barcelona. It's always the same every year, but the truth is that I'm going to stay at City. I'm very happy and I'm going to continue there."
The 26-year-old has been a huge hit at City since moving to the Etihad in 2011, helping them win two Premier League titles and an FA Cup during those three years.
