Aguero scored 33 goals in 45 games this season and is contracted until 2020. He said in March he did not want to leave.

In a wide-ranging interview, Al Mubarak also told the City website:

  • Finishing third in the Premier League was not a disappointment

  • The club are looking to sign a goalkeeper and full-backs

  • He wants right-back Pablo Zabaleta, who has joined West Ham, to return to City once he retires
