Manchester City have contacted Sergio Aguero regarding the striker's long-term future at the Etihad Stadium.
Aguero has been linked with a move back to Spain in recent months - with Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mail, said to be keen on enticing the Argentine international back to La Liga.
However Manchester City will do everything in their power to keep the 25-year-old away from the clutches of Real Madrid.
Aguero sealed a £38million move to Manchester City on the back of an impressive five years at Atletico Madrid, which could dampen Real Madrid's chances of completing a move for the striker.
Manchester City's chances of keeping Aguero at the Etihad Stadium were boosted following news of Barcelona's transfer ban, as the Catalan giants were also said to be interested in the prolific hitman.
Manuel Pellegrini, who had to make do without his star striker for a significant chunk of the season, sees Aguero as an integral part of his side.
