Once upon a time, Sergio Aguero – when fit – was the first name on the team-sheet at Manchester City without fail. Understandably so; the Argentine helped fire the Citizens to two Premier League titles since signing from Atletico Madrid in 2011, notching up a total of 154 goals in 234 outings.
The 28-year-old is still as deadly as ever when given plentiful supply, but he and Pep Guardiola haven’t exactly seen eye-to-eye since the former Barcelona boss turned up last summer and Aguero’s found himself on the bench for City’s last two Premier League fixtures, with Gabriel Jesus getting the nod instead.
That’s lead to rife speculation regarding Aguero’s future at the Etihad Stadium, so we asked City fans earlier this week whether they’d sell the South American at the end of the campaign – amid suggestions of a potential £80million deal.
As you can see, the majority of City fans were by no means convinced by the idea, with 70% voting against it. Nonetheless, the 30% supporting the notion still feels significant – can you imagine three in ten City fans arguing to sell Aguero at this point last season, or for that matter any point during his six campaigns at the Etihad Stadium?
