Sergio Aguero has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until June 2021.
He signed a five-year deal in 2014 and a one-year extension in summer 2016, and will be 33 when his contract expires.
“I am happy for this additional year,” Aguero said. “My idea was being here for 10 years. I’ve been here for seven years [and] it’s going to be 10 when the contract expires.
“This was the main reason I signed. I’m very happy because they have treated my very well since the first day I got here. I’m very happy with everything that involves the club, my teammates, the staff and the management team.”
Aguero has been linked with moves away from the Etihad since the arrival of Pep Guardiola but finished last season with more than 20 Premier League goals for a fourth successive campaign.
He had a knee operation at the end of last season and said he is playing pain-free for the first time in years.
“He has been so important to this club since his arrival in 2011 and he remains at the forefront of what we are want to achieve in the coming years,” director of football Txiki Begiristain said. “We are fortunate to have had one of the best strikers in the world at our club for so many years and I’m sure our supporters will be thrilled with this news.”
City have tied down a number of key players to new contracts in recent months with Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Ederson all signing new deals.
