​Man City manager Guardiola coy on Aguero contract

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola would not be drawn on speculation around a possible new contract for Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine striker is out of contract in the summer, as his manager Guardiola.

While the 32-year-old Aguero would like to stay, it is unclear if City will offer him fresh terms.

He may still be a prolific striker, but his injury history has concerned the club.

"I don't know, I don't want to talk about it because I am not involved with this," Guardiola told a pre-match press conference.

"If I should be involved in contracts, maybe the day should be 48 hours, not 24! What I want is for Sergio to be fit, what I want is Sergio [to] come back again, be ready as much as possible.

"We miss him a lot. What he has done for this club is outstanding, [he] will be a legend of this club, we want to enjoy him before but it depends on his physicality and his physical condition."
