According to reports from Mirror Football, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed shock plans to leave the club when his contract expires in 2019. 

Since arriving from Atletico Madrid in summer 2011, the Argentina international has gone on to score 116 goals in 176 appearances across all competitions for the Citizens – firing them to Premier League titles in 2012 and 2014.

His most memorable moment remains the fabled last-minute goal against QPR at the end of the 2011/12 season that guaranteed the Eastlands outfit their first ever Premier League title.

Despite recurring injury problems, the 27-year-old remains an integral member of the City starting Xi, scoring nine times in twelve outings this season, and has often been linked with big-money moves to Real Madrid or Barcelona.

But Aguero has revealed in an interview with So Foot that his next club will be his first – Argentinian outfit Independiente. The 5 foot 8 striker joined the club’s academy at the age of nine and after progressing through the youth ranks scored 23 times in 56 appearances at senior level, before leaving for Vincente Calderon in 2006.

And Aguero has claimed he will re-sign for Independiente when his City contract expires in 2019. As quoted by Mirror Football, he said; “I have always said that I want to return to Independiente and I will do just that. I will return to Independiente when my contract with City expires. I do not want to make my comeback when I am too old. If everything goes well, I will return to the club of my heart at the age of 31.”
