Atlético Madrid coach Javier Aguirre commented on the news linking Sergio Agüero with Manchester City. The Mexican said that the Argentinian is happy at Atlético and will fulfill his contract.
“On the subject of him possibly leaving, he has a contract here, he is happy here and I’m sure that he is going to want to stay,” said Aguirre. “Sergio, I truly believe, is going to do very good things here.”
Machester City sent scouts to watch the Argentinean play for Atlético against Getafe on Wednesday night. Agüero’s contract still has four years left to run and has a €60m buy-out clause. That figure was set to deter potential buyers after the player’s £16m move from Independiente in 2006, but would not provide a significant hurdle to City’s new owners. Atletico were reported to reject a €35 million offer from Chelsea last summer, which was the main reason why the club increased the buy-out clause from €55m to €60m later this year.
