• Aguero targets 'run of trophies'

Aguero, 23, enjoyed an impressive debut season at City after joining from Atletico Madrid for £38 million as he scored 23 goals in 34 Premier League appearances to help the club to their first title since 1968.

The Argentina international's sparkling form has led to suggestions he could be targeted by La Liga champions Real this summer, but the forward has been keen to play down the speculation.

Aguero told The Times: "My future is at Manchester City. I want to stay here. My contract has four years left to run and I see myself being here at least as long as that.

"There are always rumours, but there is no truth in them. I am not thinking about moving to Real Madrid or anywhere else.

"City have treated me very well from the very first day I arrived, I'm settled at the club and my family are happy in Manchester, and I want to stay.

"I can win everything that I want to win here. We have won one title now and we can go on to win more.

"Once you have one, you are desperate for the second, the third, the fourth, and it will be the same with us. We won the Premier League title this season. Why shouldn't we believe we can win it in years to come, too?"
