Manchester City have confirmed that the ace striker Sergio Augero will leave the club at the end of this season. The Argentine, who signed from Atletico Madrid in 2011, has scored 257 goals in 384 appearances for the club. Since then, the striker has helped City win three more Premier League titles, one FA Cup and five League Cups.
Aguero, who joined City from Atletico Madrid in 2011, is sure to attract the interest of a number of top clubs with Barcelona and Juventus linked with potential moves for the 32-year-old.
“Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the past 10 years cannot be overstated,” chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said. “His legend will be indelibly etched into the memories of everyone who loves the Club and maybe even in those who simply love football” added Al Mubarak.
“I was to join during the reconstruction era of 2011, and with the guidance of the owners and contributions of many players, we earned a place among the greatest of the world,” said Augero.
He will be honoured by a statue at Etihad Stadium, alongside title-winning captain Vincent Kompany and influential playmaker David Silva, who left the club in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
