Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has reportedly told his team-mates that he wants to leave the club in the summer, with Spain his likely destination.
The news comes just 24 hours after it was announced that Roberto Mancini lost his job as manager at the Etihad Stadium - and it tops off what has been a negative week for the club.
Last year's champions lost their Premier League title to fierce-rivals Manchester United this season, while they also lost the FA Cup final on Saturday to recently-relegated Wigan Athletic.
It is strongly reported that City are lining up Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini to be their new coach - and it appears that his first job will be to try and keep Aguero at the club.
According to Sportsmail, Aguero has hinted to his team-mates that he will be willing to listen to offers from other clubs in the summer and has made it clear that his future does not lie in Manchester.
The 24-year-old is apparently unhappy at the relationships in the dressing room as there seems to be conflict between players and the coaching staff, but City officials are hoping this problem will evaporate after sacking Mancini.
It is thought that Aguero hasn't been happy in England since his marriage broke down and it looks like that could finally seal his fate in Manchester despite being a fan favourite after scoring the Premier League winning goal last season.
The Argentina international arrived at City in July 2011 after completing his £38m move from Atletico Madrid and signing a five-year deal.
