Sergio Aguero is set to sit down with Manchester City in June regarding his future as the club have yet to inform him officially that he is wanted beyond the summer.
Aguero featured strongly and scored twice in City’s 5-1 FA Cup fifth-round replay win over Huddersfield Town. While it was a consecutive brace of goals for the Argentinian striker, it still has not ended speculation about his future with the Manchester club.
The rumours of an imminent exit began when Pep Guardiola dropped him in favour of Gabriel Jesus last month; Aguero managed to regain a place in the Manchester City first team only because of the Brazil forward’s metatarsal injury.
Privately the club insist Aguero, 28 and under contract until 2020, will not be sold, but in an interview the player admitted that Manchester City has not tell him that there are plans to have him stay beyond June.
“That will be seen in June,” Aguero said. “My intention is to stay but it is a long way away. I have three months to give my best and as I always said, in June it will be seen. One thing is that the club officially says it (they want me to stay) and another thing is to tell me.”
“The club has not directly told me they want me to stay. All I have to do is dedicate myself to playing football, there are three months left, the only thing I think is to give the best in these three months and then you will see. My intention is to stay. The club can say what it wants but in June they will have to meet with me.”
“I’m not thinking about Real Madrid or anywhere, I am focused on City,” he added. “I do not want to think about what will happen to my future. I hope that by June we can achieve a title, which is the most important thing, and then we will see.”
City coach Pep Guardiola has repeatedly said it is up to Aguero if he stays, but also admitted: “At the end of the season I don’t know [if Aguero will remain]. Even in my career I didn’t know what would happen at the end of the season.”
