Man City chief confirms Sergio Aguero statue plans

Argentine star striker Sergio Aguero's ten-year contract with Manchester City is set to end this season. According to Man City, Aguero will no longer be at the club after his contract expires.

Man City coach Pep Guardiola went to meet Aguero on Monday to announce the club's decision. Aguero has only played 14 times this season due to injury and illness. The rest of the time he had to sit outside the field.

Man City have confirmed that Sergio Aguero will depart the club at the end of the season as they signal plans to build a statue of the striker following his trophy-laden decade. Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has confirmed that Sergio Aguero will have a statue outside the Etihad.

The Argentine's departure at the end of the season has been confirmed after months of speuclation. His contact has just months to run and his exit had long been expected following a year that has been hampered by injuries.

Aguero joined Man City during the 2011 summer transfer window.

Aguero's most memorable moment for Man City was undoubtedly the last time the team won the title with a goal against the Queens Park Rangers. Aguero's insane celebration of opening that jersey has become part of Man City's history.

The 32-year-old Argentina striker has netted 257 goals in 384 appearances since arriving in Manchester in 2011 – earning a reputation as one of the greatest ever players to grace a British football pitch.
