Manchester City hero Sergio Aguero denies Real Madrid link after committing future to Blues

By Dean Wilkins

Manchester City hero Sergio Aguero is committing to the Premier League champions after dismissing a transfer link with Real Madrid.

The Argentine striker netted 30 times for the Blues last season after helping them secure the top spot in England.

The 23-year-old moved to Manchester from Atletico Madrid last summer and signed a deal which takes him through to 2016 – and he intends to stay until then.

"My future is at Manchester City," Aguero told the Times. "I want to stay here. My contract has four years left to run and I see myself being here at least as long as that.”

He added: "There are always rumours, but there is no truth in them. I am not thinking about moving to Real Madrid or anywhere else.

"City have treated me very well from the very first day I arrived, I'm settled at the club and my family are happy in Manchester, and I want to stay."

Aguero’s injury-time winner against QPR on the final day of the Premier League clinched City’s first domestic title since 1968 and the star is aiming to add the Champions League to the trophy cabinet.

"I can win everything that I want to win here," Aguero said.

"We have won one title now and we can go on to win more. Once you have one, you are desperate for the second, the third, the fourth, and it will be the same with us.

"We won the Premier League this season. Why shouldn't we believe we can win it in years to come, too?

"We will be even better next season, I am certain of that. We had a lot of new players getting to know each other this year. We want to keep going.

"It is fundamental to carry on winning. We will have more power next season, obviously. We will just keep getting stronger and better."
