The greatest striker in Manchester City recent history will stick around for a little longer.

Sergio Agüero has agreed to sign a one-year extension of his current contract with the Citizens, according to a report from ESPN. The Argentine's original deal had him staying at the club until 2019, but now he's made the decision to stay until 2020, and then return to his childhood club Independiente to finish his career in his home country.

Agüero's deal is yet to be made official by the club, but the announcement will be made over the next few days. Sergio has been in spectacular early form this season, scoring nine goals in just six appearances and looking even more lethal than he already was since the arrival of Pep Guardiola, and 'Kun' has credited his new manager for his great early form:

"I'm really happy with the new manager. According to my style of playing, he is one of the managers that have helped me most in my career. Despite [my form] in the Premier League, and my last season at Atletico, I've improved in my game near the box and scoring goals. With Pep I will get even more chances."

Agüero will serve the final two games of his domestic suspension on Saturday's Premier League match against Bournemouth and the League Cup tie against Swansea, and is set to return to the pitch in the Premier League game against the same Swansea in a week's time.
