The Sky Blues all-time top-scorer appears to be heading towards the exit door after a glorious decade-long stint at the club.

Pep Guardiola has informed that a decision on Sergio Aguero’s future at Manchester City will not be made until the end of the season.

Aguero’s legendary status at the club cannot be diminished but he is no longer an indispensable presence in the Man City team.

The aging striker has been restricted to a mere three starts, and 11 appearances, across all competitions so far this season due to various injuries. He returned to fitness in February, and he has featured quite inconsistently even since then.

The former Atletico Madrid man is out of contract at the end of the season, and Guardiola suggests he remains undecided on whether to offer the player an extension.

“We are going to talk to him as a human being, as a person and, of course, as a player,” the official club website quotes Guardiola.

“We will have to see what happens at the end of the season. We cannot forget how long he was out.

“Now he has started getting better. I know he needs minutes to get to his best condition but we are now maybe not in the moment we can give minutes for minutes. 

“I think the Club has spoken with his agent and they know the situation. We will talk at the end of the season.”
