Sergio Aguero has reiterated his desire to stay put at Manchester City this summer despite constant speculation linking him with a return to play in Spain.
The 26-year-old Argentina international bagged an impressive 28 goals in all competitions last season as he helped City win their second Premier League title in three seasons and lift the Capital One Cup.
However the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona are said to be considering a summer swoop for Aguero, who plied his trade in the Spanish La Liga with Atletico Madrid before moving to the Etihad Stadium for £38million in summer 2011.
But while the player is fully focused on his country’s bid to lift their first World Cup title since Mexico ’86 in Brazil this summer, he took time out to pledge his immediate future to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
He told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope: “There’s lots of talk about Real Madrid and Barcelona.
“It’s always the same every year, but the truth is that I’m going to stay at City. I’m very happy and I’m going to continue there.”
Aguero’s Argentina, who defeated Bosnia 2-1 in their World Cup Group F opener on Sunday night, are 4.90 to win the World Cup. They can be backed at 1.11 to pick up a second win against Iran on Saturday.
