Sergio Aguero will leave Manchester City at the end of his contract this summer. Aguero will depart the Etihad as the club’s leading goalscorer of all time. The Argentina international has scored 257 goals in 384 appearances since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the last 10 years cannot be overstated.
“His legend will be indelibly etched into the memories of everyone who loves the Club and maybe even in those who simply love football.
“This is not yet the moment for farewell words and speeches. There is still much to achieve in the remainder of the time we have with Sergio, and we look forward to his contributions to the challenges which lay ahead.”
The City chief also confirmed there will be a statue of Aguero at the Etihad, alongside his former team-mates David Silva and Vincent Kompany.
He added: “In the meantime, 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 and David.
“And we look forward to the opportunity to bid Sergio a fitting farewell at the end of the season.”
