Aguero signs contract extension

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has penned a new contract with the club until the summer of 2017.

His new deal has extended his stay at the Etihad Stadium by a further year, and warns off any potential suitors including Real Madrid who have been linked with his signature since the season ended last weekend.

The Argentine International has been in exceptional form since arriving at the club from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011 for a reported £38 million.

He recently labelled his relationship with the fans as a key factor to enjoying his time with the club, and who could blame him after writing his name in Manchester City folklore by scoring the injury time winners against Queens Park Rangers in 2012 to win them the Premier League title.

Aguero stated in a recent interview with SkySports:

"I have a fantastic relationship with the fans. I can never forget that moment. I am looking forward to next season and pushing hard to win the title again."

Aguero looks like he maybe partnered up front next season by striker Edinson Cavani, who has been heavily linked with a move to the club after Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis announced last week talks had started regarding a swap deal involving Edin Dzeko.
