Manchester City are ready to offer Argentine playmaker, Sergio Aguero, a massive £52 million new deal which will keep him at the club until 2019, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The 26-year old, joined the Premier League Champions on a five-year deal in 2011 from Atletico Madrid, for around £38 million, with the club extending that an additional year in 2013, keeping the playmaker at the the Etihad until 2017.
Auguero has scored 52-goals in only 87-appearances for his club, the sort of form that attracts the attention of clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona, however with both of the Spanish giants having secured their marquee signings of the summer, it appears for now the Argentine will remain in Manchester.
This is why City want to keep him
Club officials are in the process of trying to convince their star-man of accepting an improved offer on his £200,000-a-week deal, which will include a series of huge bonuses that need to fall in line with UEFA'S Financial Fair Play rules.
The club are hoping Aguero will commit to the bumper new deal that will hopefully fend off any advances down the line from the big European clubs.
Aguero was pivotal in Manchester City winning the title last season scoring 17-goals in just 23-matches, however his form for Argentina was questionable during the World Cup in Brazil.
Sergio Aguero a class act
Granted, he did struggle for much of the tournament with a thigh injury, although there has been a level of criticism in the past towards the player for not being able to transform his club form onto the international stage, despite scoring 22-goals for his country.
The improved deal comes off the back of Samir Nasri committing himself to the club for a further five-years at £200,000-a-week, while Aleksandar Kolarov has also extended his stay for a further three-years.
