Manchester City Sign Sergio Aguero


City paid Atletico Madrid £38 million for the striker.

Aguero’s five year contract, which is worth more than £200,000 a week, will set the club back another £52 million.

The 23-year-old believes he is worth the money and stated, ‘I think like a giant, think like a winner’.

The deal ranks second in all-time British signings, only to the £50 million Chelsea paid Liverpool to secure Fernando Torres in January.

It eclipses the £32.5 million City paid Real Madrid for Robinho three years ago.

Aguero has insisted he is ready to prove himself in England having scored more than 100 La Liga goals in five years in Spain.

Aguero said, ‘ The best Premier League striker I’ve seen, and by a long way, is Didier Drogba at his most powerful – and Torres isn’t far behind’.
