Man City give Aguero five-year deal
Sergio Aguero has agreed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, the club announced on Thursday.
The Argentine striker's new deal will runs until 2019, and Aguero said he plans to remain at the Etihad for the duration.
"The reality seems to be that ever since I came here, during every close season, there have always been rumours suggesting that I might be returning to Spain," Aguero said. "There has always been this speculation but I certainly never pay much attention to it.
"People hear this stuff flying around and they take it seriously but I can tell the fans and everyone at City to relax, I'm going to be here until I see out my contract."
Happy about renewing contract with @MCFC and eager to keep on winning titles with this great team.- Sergio Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) August 14, 2014
Aguero, 26, is the fifth Manchester City player to get a new contract this summer, with David Silva, Vincent Kompany and Samir Nasri also signing deals through 2019, and Aleksandar Kolarov signing through 2018.
Forward Eden Dzeko has said he also expects a new contract in the coming days.
Aguero has scored 75 goals in 122 appearances since joining City in the summer of 2011, including the winner that helped gave them the Premier League title in 2012.

"Each year, I aim to better the previous one," Aguero said. "Last season was incredible but I'm not just satisfied with two Premier League titles, I want more and I can achieve them here alongside my teammates.
"This club is special; the fans, the stadium, the staff, the atmosphere, the new facility we're moving into -- everything!
"We have enjoyed lots of success and some incredible moments but the overall vision for the future and where we are going are the reasons why I wanted to stay here, to win trophies and to keep making history through my best years."
