Sergio Aguero says he is open to leaving Manchester City in 2019, as he always intended to return to Independiente.
The Argentina international spent six years in the club’s youth system and three years in the senior team.
Aguero then joined Atletico, before joining City in 2011 and will like to play for Independiente before retiring.
“It came out that Milan and Real Madrid wanted me and – I don’t know where I read it – but they said: ‘They just spoiled Independiente’s dream’,” he told reporters while on international duty.
“But the idea was always to go back to Independiente when my contract with City runs out in 2019.
“I have an option to extend one more year with City where it’s the priority but it’s always an option.
“The idea is to go back. Now, they are doing very well and hopefully they can win the cup, but it’s not easy.”
