Manchester City's marksman Sergio Aguero will leave the club when his new contract expires in 2019. His desire is to return to his first club Independiente. Aguero left the Argentine club in 2006 at the age of 18 to join Spanish power Atletico Madrid. The striker moved from Atleti to Manchester City in the summer of 2011.

Speaking to a radio station in his native Argentina, Aguero laid out his future.

"Here (at City) they know what I want to do, they know I want to return to Argentina,"

"My family know that I am going to go there when my contract with Manchester City finishes"

Aguero has scored 128 goals from Manchester City and lifted four major trophies since joining the club. At 27, he still has some of best years ahead of him and will likely slot nicely into Pep Guardiola's system when the new regime takes charge at the Etihad over the summer.

Unlike Aguero, the fate of the Blues other long-standing core squad members such as Yaya Toure, David Silva and Aleksandar Kolarov is very much in doubt with the arrival of Guardiola.
