Manchester City talisman Sergio Aguero has confirmed he will leave the Sky Blues once his current contract expires in 2019 and return to boyhood club Independiente, according to the Mirror.

The striker wants to return to his home country Argentina and play for the club who gave him his first opportunity in professional football.

"I will return to Independiente when my contract with City expires," Aguero told So Foot.

"I have always said that I want to return to Independiente and I will do just that."

The 27-year-old came through the Argentine side's ranks and signed his first professional contract over 10 years ago in 2003, making his first team debut aged 15.

After three seasons of substitute appearances, Aguero was given an extended run in the team and rewarded his manager's trust with 18 goals in 36 appearances during the 2005/06 campaign.

"I do not want to make my comeback when I am too old. If everything goes well, I will return to the club of my heart at the age of the 31," he continued.

The Argentine's trademark eye for goal and potential - which many would say he has fulfilled - earned him a big money move to Europe with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

Aguero took to European football like a duck to water and fired 101 goals over five seasons for Madrid, before moving to current club City in the summer of 2011 for a fee in the region of £38 million.

City fans will not want to hear their star player is angling for a move, no matter how many years in the future. The Argentina international has helped the Citizens to two Premier League titles, the first of which he snatched with a last-gasp strike on the final day of the season.

Aguero is undoubtedly one of the world's greatest football talents, with his ability and goalscoring prowess likely to prove irreplaceable at the Etihad.
