Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted he still doesn’t know where his future lies beyond this summer after confirming the Citizens are yet to open discussions about a renewal.
The Argentine striker netted a brace this week to send Pep Guardiola’s side into the FA Cup quarter-finals at the expense of Huddersfield Town but the former Atletico Madrid man couldn’t assure fans of his position.
Speaking after the game, quoted by The Sun, 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. The club can say what it wants but in June they will have to meet with me.”
“One thing is that the club officially says it – and another thing is to tell me.”
When asked if the club had told him directly that they want him to stay, Aguero added:
“No, no. All I have to dedicate to is playing football. It is a breakthrough for the club to say that – but I do not want to think about what will happen to my future.”
Aguero was pictured having dinner with his agent and Pep Guardiola in a Manchester restaurant recently, suggesting contract discussions were progressing, but the rise of Gabriel Jesus and Kelechi Iheanacho has reduced the Argentine’s importance within the squad.
