Manchester City have confirmed that Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old’s contract with the Premier League leaders is due to expire at the end of the season and City have now indicated that his deal will not be renewed.

Aguero joined City in a £35 million deal from Atletico Madrid in July 2011 and has since gone on to establish himself as one of the Premier League’s best-ever strikers.

The Argentina international has helped City win four Premier League titles and currently sits fourth behind Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Andy Cole in the league’s all-time top scorers list.

‘Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the last 10 years cannot be overstated,’ said City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.

‘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.

‘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.’
