SERGIO AGUERO wants to head back to Argentina next summer after Manchester City’s record-breaking season.
The unsettled striker is ready to quit Manchester City as their greatest goalscorer and return to his first club Independiente.
Aguero, 29, would have the pick of clubs around the globe and has been tracked by Real Madrid during his time at the Etihad.
But intermediaries looking to broker his exit have been told that a return back to South America will be his next move.
He is still loved at Independiente where cash from his move to Atletico Madrid 12 years ago helped refurbish their whole stadium.
Aguero’s picture is still in the VIP boxes of their Libertadores de America stadium in Buenos Aires.
Former vice-president of the club Carlos Sola said: “His transfer helped complete the stadium.
“Kun only played here for a few years but all the people here think he is a club great.
“Fans know what he has done for the club and when he comes back he is a supporter of the club, one of them.”
Aguero’s son with Giannina Maradona, daughter of Diego, is also based in Argentina.
And despite banging in 15 goals this season, Aguero has been frustrated as he feels he does not have the trust of boss Pep Guardiola.
He showed his anger when he was subbed against Tottenham and tossed his gloves away.
Guardiola is also looking at bolstering his forward line in the summer and will move for Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer, which could impact on Aguero.
But with City riding high in four competitions, and favourite to win in two, he will look to keep the club’s greatest ever goal-scorer until the season is complete.
The run-away club are smashing records each week and look to extend their unbeaten run, of 18 league wins, today against Crystal Palace.
