Sergio Aguero is looking to sign a new contract and follow the example set by Pep Guardiola, says former Manchester City defender Micah Richards. The Citizens confirmed earlier this week that the Spanish coach has signed a new contract until the summer of 2023 and Richards believes that Aguero could be following his coach soon and sign a new contract.
Aguero’s contract will end next summer and there have been suggestions that the Argentinian is set to leave the club at the end of the season. But Richards feels that Guardiola’s extension could change it up. “His intention has always been to finish his career back in Argentina but I expect now Pep Guardiola has signed a contract extension that Sergio will do the same”, Richards told the Daily Mail.
“Whether it is for 12 months or two years, it is a piece of business I hope City conclude”. the former defender added. “City will sign another striker in the future, and hopes are high for Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres, but there is nobody like Sergio. There will never be another one like him at Manchester City and there haven’t been many better in the Premier League.”
