Sergio Aguero doesn’t plan on leaving Manchester City, even as his club continues to be linked with strikers from around the world.

It was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Monday, though any number of players have been marked as the replacement for Aguero as No. 1 striker at the Etihad Stadium. That extends back to Gabriel Jesus‘ arrival this season.

But the Argentine isn’t interested in leaving Pep Guardiola‘s project, and feels he still has much to contribute. Aguero turned 29 in early June and asserted his intentions in an interview with Chinese columnist Wang Zijiang.

“I still have two years on my contract with Manchester City. I feel very happy here, so I will fulfil my contract to stay here until the end of my contract. I have not thought about where to play next. I just want to focus on the work here,” he replied.

It’s worth noting that he was also quizzed about coming to the Chinese Super League, so he had every reason to stay loyal to Man City if he wanted an easy out during the interview.
