With 3 months remaining of the Premier League season, one of the biggest questions still remains unanswered – Will Sergio Aguero still be a Manchester City player next season?
Aguero, 28, has been one of, if not the best Premiership striker over the past 6 years and his goals have created history for Manchester City, such as the injury time winner against QPR back in May 2012 to secure a league title for the first time in 44 years.
This season, with Pep Guardiola taking over from Manuel Pellegrini in the summer, Aguero’s season has had its ups and downs.
He has made 19 appearances scoring 11 goals so far this season but has not been as consistent as previous years. With injuries and a 4-match ban for a foul on Chelsea defender, David Luiz back in December, he failed to regain his place in the team as Pep Guardiola opted to start new signing Gabriel Jesus, 19. This limited Aguero to substitute appearances in which he struggled to make any impact.
Since Jesus’s injury, Aguero has been brought back to lead the line but speculation increases as to his happiness in Manchester.
With Real Madrid on the radar, Aguero could be much happier returning to Spain, especially to the city of his former club, Atletico Madrid.
Aguero is a brilliant striker and he shouldn’t be sitting on the bench. Hopefully he will stay in England as his quality on show is second to none.
