Sergio Aguero

Manchester City’s star striker Sergio Aguero said he will leave the English Premier League side for Argentine football club Independiente after the 2018 World Cup, even though his current contract does not expire until 2019.

Aguero signed a five-year deal with City in August 2014 which would see him stay at the club until the end of the 2018-19 season, while talks were also held over a one-year extension.

“In the last few months a lot of things have been said about a new contract, but I didn’t pay any attention. It’s clear to me that when my contract ends, after the World Cup, I’m going to Independiente,” Aguero was quoted as saying by radio station Independient en la Uno on Wednesday.

“Here at the club they are great with me, they always told me that they were open if the chance of a transfer arises. But where am I going to go in Europe? No, when I go, when my contract ends, I’m going to Argentina to play for Independiente.”

“From Manchester, straight to Avellaneda,” the Argentina national footballer added.

Aguero has previously spoken of his desire to return to Independiente when his City contract expires.

“I do not want to make my comeback when I am too old. If everything goes well, I will return to the club of my heart at the age of 31,” he said in December 2015.
