Sergio Aguero is hopeful that Manchester City's Premier League success this season will propel the club to further silverware in the near future.
City clinched their first league title since 1968 with a dramatic final day victory over QPR, ultimately pipping their rivals United to the top of the table on goal difference.
The club have benefited from the financial muscle of Sheikh Mansour in recent years, and it is anticipated manager Roberto Mancini will continue to tweak his squad this summer in a bid to bring further glory to Eastlands.
Aguero, who scored the title-winning goal in injury time, said: "It's all about City now, not United. What we've done there is manage to pull it out of the fire and win it at the very last minute and hopefully it's the start of big things for City in the future.
"It was almost lost but we managed to save ourselves in the last minutes. I'm really, really happy – obviously, given that it's a massive thing winning the Premier League. It's a fantastic moment.
"It would have been a real body blow (to lose the title) but the main thing is to concentrate on the fact that we did win it, and the effect is opposite; the total opposite. It's going to be a real boost, a real positive effect on the side going into the future.
"I came here to win trophies. I think City have become a great side. I think you can say we are up there with the big boys with that victory and a league title. Let's hope it is the start of a run of trophies."
Of his decisive strike against QPR, the Argentina international said: "In my career so far it's the most important goal. You score the goal in the last minute to win the title. You're not sure if that's ever going to happen in your career again.
"I wish I could tell you how I did it but I can't. I thought for all the world that Mario (Balotelli) was going to have a go himself but he just moved it on one more and it fell at my feet and I just thought: 'Hit the target, hit it as hard as you can and hit the target.' And it went in."
Aguero also expressed his hope that strikers Edin Dzeko and Balotelli will remain at the club, amid speculation they could be sold this summer following a mixed 2011-12 campaign for the pair.
He said: "In terms of what their personal decisions are, it's nothing to do with me. I hope they stay because both of them as individuals are great players and have brought a lot to the side during the season.
"Let's hope they do stay because it would be a good thing for City [with] the quality they bring to the club."
