Sergio Aguero to Leave the Etihad

It really is the end of an era. Sergio Aguero is set to leave Manchester City at the end of the season after a ten year career at the club.

Aguero signed from Atletico Madrid in 2011 scoring 257 goals in 384 appearances for the club. This made the 32 Argentine the clubs record goalscorer and a club hero and cult hero in the Premier League.

It is unclear as to where the striker will be playing his football next season after the announcement was made early today. However, rumours are that Aguero will be returning to Argentina to play for boyhood club Club Atlético Independiente.

The record goalscorer helped the Sky Blues to their very first Premier League title as well as multiple peices of silverware including the FA Cup and League Cup. The only trophy alueding the clinical finisher is the Champions League, of which Man City are in the quarter finals of this season.

Aguero will be honoured for his time at Man City by having a statue unveiled outside the ground alongside former teammates Vincent Kompany and David Silva. The trio transformed the way Man City played in the Premier League, making the club a force to be reckoned with not just in England but in Europe as well.

As Aguero becomes the latest player from Manchester City’s golden generation to leave he club, the Premier League will be losing one of the greatest finishers to ever grace the league. No one can argue that this is the end of an era.
