Agent expects Manchester City target Aguero to make final decision this week

The agent of Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero says a decision on his next destination will be made this week.

The agent of Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero says a decision on his next destination will be made this week.

Manchester City are favourites for El Kun, having accepted a bid from Corinthians for Carlos Tevez over the weekend.

"He wanted the Copa America to end to sit down and talk. During this week everything will be settled," Agüero's agent, Hernán Reguera, told Ole.

According to reports, Agüero would be willing to take a pay cut from his extraordinary £240,000-per-week salary should he make the move to Manchester, but Reguera says that his client's motivation is that of a new career challenge, despite City being one of the wealthiest club's in the world.

"Agüero has made a lot of important things for Atletico. He renewed his contract when he was one year away from becoming a free agent, he has played over 200 matches, he spent two years without vacations," Reguera said. "He is thankful to the fans and to the club's board. We have been talking about this for two months.

"I talk to the club's chiefs on a daily basis, and if it was hard for them to accept at the beginning, they have assumed it and there are no problems. He wants his career to grow, this has nothing to do with the money."
