Sergio Aguero had conceded he is unsure whether he will be a Manchester City player beyond the end of the season, and that he will look to make a decision on his future once he returns to full fitness.
The Argentina international has endured a frustrating 2020/21 campaign, with injuries and COVID-19 related issues limiting him to just five Premier League appearances.
Despite being without their talisman, City’s title tilt has gone from strength to strength, with Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne, Ferran Torres and Ilkay Gundogan all taking turns to lead the City line.
Speculation surrounding Aguero’s future at the Etihad Stadium has begun to intensify in recent months, with La Liga giants Barcelona reportedly keen to secure the 32-year-old’s services should he become a free agent in the summer.
Now, Aguero has admitted he doesn’t know whether he will extend his stay with the Premier League leaders, and that his primary concern is to get back to playing football.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said, quoted by The Times. “The first thing that I want to do is play football. Once I start playing, then I will see what decision I have to take.
“I don’t know where I am going to go at the end of the year. I don’t have an idea. I will keep playing until my body allows me to. I hope that I can continue for a few more years.”
Aguero did little to dampen speculation he could be heading to Camp Nou this summer, after previously admitting that he would love to link up with international colleague Lionel Messi.
The Barcelona forward’s future is also far from clear, with Paris Saint-Germain and City battling it out to sign the six-time Ballon d’Or winner. Whether Aguero’s comments were made with the hope City would intensify their interest remains unclear – much like his future in the Premier League.
