Sergio Aguero is aiming for a historic double with City this season writes the Sunday Mirror’s Simon Mullock.
The Argentina international believes the Blues must win silverware this season after failing to land any trophies during the 2012/13 campaign and so is targeting the ultimate double in club football.
Writes Mullock: “After the disappointment of finishing second to rivals Manchester United and losing the FA Cup Final to Wigan last season, City started the new campaign with a flourish by hammering Newcastle 4-0 in their opening game under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.
“Aguero was on target against the Magpies and, ahead of today’s clash at new boys Cardiff, the powerhouse Argentine has outlined City’s quest for perfection.
'We must win a trophy — and there’s none more important than the Premier League,’ said Aguero. ‘We definitely have a team that can win the title, and why not the Champions League, too?
Our objective is to keep fighting to reach to the top and, if that means taking on Manchester United, all the better. We’ve got the team to beat anyone and we’re ready for the challenge. Chelsea and Spurs have good squads too
‘But we need to find the commitment to do things better because we’ve made some excellent signings and have the talent to do great things. We go into the season wanting to win everything.’”
Watch out for an Aguero special supplement and exclusive interview in the City match-day programme against Hull next Saturday.
Staying with the Mirror, there is a report that a former City boss may make a move for John Guidetti before the transfer window closes next weekend.
Michael Morgan reports: “Mark Hughes is ready to launch a raid on his old club for Guidetti.
“Stoke boss Hughes wants to beef-up his attack and is planning a £5.5million swoop for the Swedish international striker.
“The 21-year-old was assured last summer that he had a future at the Etihad after coming back from a successful season-long loan with Feyenoord.
“He plundered 20 goals in 23 outings for the Dutch giants and was handed a new three-year deal on his return to Manchester.”
