Pep Guardiola has said Sergio Aguero must prove he deserves to gets a contract extension at the Etihad.
Agüero is under contract until June 2021, but can negotiate with foreign clubs in January with less than six months left on his deal.
With the 32-year-old’s current deal at the Etihad is due to expire next June, his future has been the subject of speculation recently, with Inter Milan reportedly interested in signing the strike.
The 32-year-old sustained the injury in June and made his return in Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Arsenal.
According to Skysport News, Pep Guardiola has said the Club’s all-time record goalscorer must prove he deserves to gets a contract extension after nine highly successful years in Manchester.
“Sergio now has to show, like every one of us, that he deserves to continue here — keep playing well, scoring goals and winning games — and after that the club and I will decide,” Guardiola told the British media.
“But if he’s playing in his level we don’t have any doubts that he’s a player to stay until he decides because he’s unique. He’s important for us, our fans and everyone.”
“But he was out four months and he has to start training regularly and start to score goals. Having Aguero on the pitch, we’re better, safer. We missed him in the important moments at the end part of last season.”
Aguero signed for City in 2011 from Atletico Madrid for a fee in the region of £35m, the Argentine has since become a mainstay of City’s success winning four titles, a solitary FA Cup and five League Cups.
He became City’s all-time record goalscorer last season (254 goals), in addition to overtaking Thierry Henry as the highest overseas scorer in Premier League history (180 goals),

There is nothing more to prove . His stats says it all … The thing is he just has to stay fit .. lots of goal will come simultaneously.

Pep needs to prove himself to be the best.
Aguero doesn’t need to prove. Guy scored the most dramatic goal in the PL history. Tht itself can give him 3-4 yrs of contract

Pep Guardiola must prove he ‘deserves to continue here’ before he gets a contract extension,because humiliating us four years in UCL isn’t worthy of new contract…

To be fair Peo said three weeks ago that he has to earn a contract extension. If it’s good enough for the manager to say about himself it’s good enough for his players. Love Sergio. Everyone has to earn their place and I’m sure he will. As will Pep!!
