Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires.

A City statement read: “Manchester City will bid a fond and emotional farewell to legendary striker Sergio Aguero when his contract expires this summer.

“Treasured by City fans and a global icon of the game, Aguero is one of the most decorated and respected footballers to wear the sky-blue shirt.

“He joined City in the summer of 2011, making an immediate impact by scoring twice and creating an assist on his thirty-minute cameo debut in a 4-0 home win over Swansea City. It was a dramatic and impressive start that gave an indication of what was to follow.

“One renowned such moment would include his heart-stopping goal in the unforgettable final game of that same season against QPR which secured the Club’s first-ever Premier League title.”

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce that we will be commissioning an artist to create a statue of Sergio to live at the Etihad Stadium alongside the ones under construction for Vincent [Kompany] and David [Silva].

“We look forward to the opportunity to bid Sergio a fitting farewell at the end of the season.”
