Manchester City’s Pellegrini: Aguero isn’t going anywhere and doesn’t want to, anyway


Sergio Aguero is not going to be leaving Manchester City.

The Premier League’s leading goal scorer is quite an asset, and City isn’t interested in selling its crown jewel.

If you believe Man City’s manager, Aguero doesn’t want to go, anyway, which is good because they don’t want him to, either.

City is second in the Premier League with 73 points, three ahead of Arsenal which has played one less match.

From the BBC:

Striker Sergio Aguero is not intending to leave Manchester City, says manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The Argentine, 26, has scored 31 goals in 40 appearances for City this season.

Asked if he was concerned about interest in Aguero, the Chilean said: “I don’t think so because we are not a selling team and I think that Sergio is very happy here, so he doesn’t have any intention to go.”

It would be pretty shocking if Aguero was sold, unless it was in some sort of deal to bring Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or a similar best of the best player to the Etihad Stadium.

But if you needed the current manager to say so, well, there you go.
