Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has reiterated the fact he would like Sergio Aguero to stay at the Etihad.
The future of the Argentine striker has come under question recently following his dropping to the bench, but Guardiola is adamant he wants his key man to stick around.
I want to be clear again. I am so happy with Sergio and hopefully he can stay for a long time here. I want from deep in my heart he can stay here and play with us.
He is a special player, he is a striker who scores millions of goals in his career. I know for strikers it depends on the moment, but we cannot forget how many goals he scores for us.
