Sergio Aguero seals City deal

Aguero will become the spearhead of Roberto Mancini's attack

Sergio Aguero, the highly-rated Argentina and Atletico Madrid striker, will be presented as a Manchester City player within the next 24 hours and could make his debut for his new club in the Dublin Super Cup this weekend.

Aguero, 23, has agreed a deal at the Etihad Stadium which will see City part with £35m to secure his services, and pay the son-in-law of Diego Maradona £150k per week over the course of a five-year contract. Aguero is seen as the future of Roberto Mancini’s attack, especially if Carlos Tevez is granted his wish of a move away from Manchester, with a move to Internazionale (is that closer to Buenos Aires?) looking more likely following photographs showing the striker in Sardinia meeting Inter officials.

Aguero, who spent five seasons in Madrid with Los Rojiblancos before making public his stance that he wished to leave the Vicente Calderon this summer, prior to taking part in Argentina’s ill-fated Copa America campaign (although the player was one of few bright spots for La Albiceleste), last night tweeted he was “already a City player [and] happy to be in this club and in this city.”
