Striker plays down exit fears
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has played down fresh speculation linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid.
The former Atletico Madrid star believes the rumours are just designed to try and unsettle him but Aguero is adamant that he is not angling for a return to Spain. Aguero has made it clear that he is enjoying life in Manchester and being part of City's drive for success, and that won't change even if Roberto Mancini's men miss out on the Premier League title this season. When asked if there was any truth in the rumours, the Argentina international told reporters: "No no, all of that, no. "The truth is that I am happy here, happy with my fellow players and the rest of the staff. The only thing I have to do is enjoy playing football. "I hardly ever do interviews. Sometimes I have to get in touch to deny or correct the claims but I can't dispel every claim that is written about me. "I repeat that I am very happy here and they invent things to try to compromise me." Aguero, who scored twice in the midweek win over West Brom, has enjoyed an excellent first campaign in England, having bagged 26 goals for City following his £38m switch last summer. The 23-year-old also set up a goal for his compatriot Carlos Tevez against the Baggies as he opened his account for the season and Aguero would love to get the chance to develop the partnership at City in the future. He added: "Obviously, Carlos is a great player, like Edin (Dzeko) and Mario (Balotelli), and fortunately we know each other from (playing with) Argentina. "He knows how I move and play and I know his game so we hope to be able to keep getting to know each other better and I'm happy for his first game."
