Sergio Aguero hit his 100th (and 101st) goals at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as Manchester City coasted to a 4-0 victory over Bournemouth.

The Argentine scored twice in the win with Raheem Sterling and Danilo also on target as Pep Guardiola’s side maintained their brilliant run.

Speaking after the game Guardiola discussed Aguero’s future amid reports that he’s unhappy at the club and could look to leave.

"I understand players when they are substitutes and don't play," he said. "They are sad and they are upset.

"But sometimes I think Gabriel Jesus deserves to play too, and Bernardo Silva or Eliaquim Mangala too.

“If they are not happy with me, that is not a problem - the most important thing is that they respect each other.

"I respect a lot about Sergio, about all he has done, what he has done and what he will do in the future.

"He is a legend and he will decide absolutely everything about his life and his future, and I am delighted to have him here with Gabriel and all of the squad."

This is not the first time there’s been speculation over Aguero’s future and it probably won’t be the last, but it’s a situation that Guardiola will need to manage carefully.
