Aguero ‘waiting until the end of the season’ to decide Man City future amid Barca interest

Guardiola confirms end of season talks

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he plans to wait until the conclusion of the campaign to consider the contract situations of a number of players, including Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho and John Stones.

“We’re going to decide at the end of the season. Now I could tell you an answer but I don’t know what is going to happen because in my mind right now I am far away from thinking about what is going to happen next season or the players that will be here,” said Guardiola.

“I am concerned with what we are playing for. We work a lot, too much, like all the clubs, to be in this position and now I don’t want to be distracted.

“If I am distracted, the players will feel I am distracted and I have to be incredibly focused for the next game and Fulham and the Champions League and the [quarter] final at Goodison Park. Maybe I will think about it when the international break starts and I have more time.”

Stones has earned his place back in the Manchester City team, following a period in which it looked as though the England international could leave the Etihad in order to earn regular game time. However, he has been able to compete alongside Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias, playing regularly in a season which could prove to be one of the club’s most successful.

This could also place Stones in good favour with England manager Gareth Southgate ahead of the European Championships this summer.

Aguero to wait

City striker Sergio Aguero is set to wait until the end of the season before making a decision regarding his future, it has been revealed.

The man who scored the famous winning goal en route to the Sky Blues’ first Premier League title is set to see his contract expire at the end of the season, and is yet to negotiate either a new deal with the club, or a pre-contract agreement with another.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that Aguero is going to be patient before making his decision, waiting to see how Manchester City do before the end of the campaign.

We have to say that Sergio Aguero has been so respectful with Manchester City. What he’s said to the club is, ‘I’m waiting until the end of the season’. So he’s not taking any final decision before the end of the season.”

“He’s waiting for the Champions League, he’s waiting for the Premier League win. Then at the end of the season, he will meet with his agents and with Manchester City, and they will decide together,” said Romano.

Rumours have suggested that Barcelona are one club to have sent a proposition the way of Aguero, to make the move to the Camp Nou for the latter years of his career.
