Don’t worry – Sergio’s not going anywhere.
But we can all understand the love our boyhood club and Kun Aguero is no different.
Of course, there are spectacular headlines to be gleaned from run-of-the-mill stories that don’t actually say anything, but it is an international break and therefore stories are thin on the ground.
Sky Sports have picked up on quote Aguero made about his beloved Independiente, with some papers going with ‘I nearly quit City’, but the truth is a little more straightforward than that.
Sky report: “Independiente suffered a shock relegation last season and Aguero admits it crossed his mind to return and help them - but the idea was soon ruled out.
'I love Independiente and when they were relegated I even thought about moving back there, he said.
‘I wanted to help the club to go up again. I definitely thought about it, but my agent told me City would have killed us if we had!
‘I know my job is at City, I am just saying the thought passed my mind when Independiente went down.
‘I've been very happy at City since the day I came but I'm definitely going to back Independiente, in a few years as I want to finish my career there.’”
Sergio has already attained legendary status among City fans for a certain goal he scored in 2012 and we’re sure he’ll have many more unforgettable moments before he dons the jersey of his childhood idols again.
There is little else of not to report this morning, save for Give Me Sport’s snipped on the chase for a talented young goalie who, because he’s from Scandinavia, must be the next-you-know…
Paul Bailey reports: “Manchester United and Manchester City will go head-to-head for the signature of highly-rated Norwegian goalkeeper Kjetil Haug.
“The 15-year-old - who is currently on the books at Sarpsborg - has been tipped for a bright future in the game, and as a result has attracted widespread interest from the Premier League.
“Haug underwent a trial at Old Trafford at the end of September, and is understood to have impressed Red Devils scouts, so much so that he was even invited to spend time training with senior goalkeepers David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard.
“However, Manchester United are yet to tie down the talented teenager, who is set to train with Manchester City for a three-day spell later this month, having also received enquiries from Arsenal and Everton.
“The Scandinavian stopper is understood to favour a move to the reigning Premier League champions, but until a contract is signed, there is an inevitable amount of doubt surrounding the future of the 'next Peter Schmeichel' as he has been billed in the media.”
