‘I’m a City player now’, claims Aguero

LONDON, England, July 28 – Argentina striker Sergio Aguero claimed on Wednesday that he had completed his £38 million ($62m) transfer to Manchester City, although the English Premier League club had yet to confirm the deal.

“I am now a City player. Happy to be in this club and this city. Thanks to all for the welcome and the reception,” Aguero wrote on his Twitter account.

The 23-year-old Atletico Madrid star, who is the son-in-law of Argentina legend Diego Maradona, earlier underwent a medical in the city.

He is seen as the answer to City’s problems in attack, where Carlos Tevez has reiterated his desire to leave the club.

British press reported on Wednesday that City had reached an agreement with Atletico over Aguero following the intervention of club chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak.

Aguero’s transfer, once confirmed, will be City’s third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Gael Clichy from Arsenal and Stefan Savic from Partizan Belgrade.
