Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero has denied all rumours suggesting he may leave Premier League Champions Manchester City this summer. The 23 year old, who is reportedly being targeted by Spanish Champions Real Madrid, said he was very happy at the Etihad.
"I decide my future and if I say I stay, then I stay at Manchester City. I want to continue here and I am happy," Aguero told Argentine radio station Rock&Closs, according to ESPN.
Also, Aguero, who was City's top scorer in the Premier League with 23 goals, feels the Citizens are now on the same level as Real Madrid and Barcelona.
"Right now, I have no intention of joining another club. My plan is to stay here because City can measure up with Real Madrid, Barcelona and the likes," Goal.com quoted Aguero as saying.
The former Atlético Madrid man, who scored City's title winning goal against QPR added he was overwhelmed by the support he has received from England.
"The fact that an Englishman has an Argentine as an idol is something very rare. I keep watching the goal that I scored against QPR and every time that I do it, I get more emotional. I cannot believe that I scored this goal. Everyone in England tells me that I gave City the title and that my shirt was the best-selling one," he added.
Meanwhile, City have reportedly offered Spanish giants Barcelona £12mn in cash plus Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov for Brazilian defender Dani Alves, according to a Daily Mail report.
City manager Roberto Mancini, who has been interested in signing the 29 year old since last year, has made it clear he will sign fresh talent this summer to strengthen his squad for next season.
According to an earlier IBTimes UK report, Mancini said City would have to buy new players in order to compete in big competitions like the Champions League. However, Alves snubbed City last summer saying he had no intentions of leaving Barcelona in the near future.
"If I did not want to stay, I would not have renewed my contract [until 2015]. My idea is to stay until the end of my contract. But the club ultimately decides," Goal.com quoted Alves as saying.
