Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero might be signing a contract extension to prolong his stay at the club, according to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
The 28-year-old, who is currently serving a 3 match retrospective ban, has previously said that he would like to return to his first club Independiente after his current deal at City expires.
Sergio Agüero joined the youth system of Independiente at the age of 9. He started playing for the side at the age of 15 years and 35 days, becoming the youngest player to debut in the division.
In May 2006, Agüero joined Spanish club Atletico Madrid for a fee reported to be around €23 million, breaking the club’s previous transfer record.

In July 2011, Manchester City confirmed that Agüero had signed a five-year contract with the club. The fee was reported to be around £38m (€45 million). Since then, Aguero has scored 105 goals in 153 appearances for the Citizens.
Guardiola said in his Friday’s press conference: “I don’t know if I am the right person to talk about that but I think he is going to extend the contract. It is not official. I don’t know if it is definitely going to happen but, if he stays, I will be so, so happy.”
Guardiola also confirmed that David Silva will miss the game against Gladbach.
“I don’t think tomorrow will be enough. I don’t think it’s a big, big problem but it happened two days ago, so I don’t think he’ll be able to play.”
