LONDON, June 16- Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted he harbours hopes of claiming the Ballon d’Or following an impressive 2014/15 campaign.

The Argentina international enjoyed a hugely productive season with the Citizens, netting 26 goals in 33 matches to claim the Premier League’s Golden Boot.

As such, Aguero feels he has a good chance of claiming the corwn from the clutches of Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

“The truth is that I would be very happy with the Ballon d’Or, I had a great year, I missed some games but the season has been very good,” Aguero said.

“The Premier League has this vision where they want everybody in the world to watch it so I have plenty of chances to at least be nominated for the Ballon d’Or.

“I think for any player it’s important. Playing in the Premier League obviously I have a lot of opportunities.”

Meanwhile, Aguero has also moved to quash any suggestions of an off-season transfer away from Eastlands, adding: “The truth is yes, I’m very happy. I’m enjoying these four years that I’ve had at City and there are still many more years to come. I’m very happy.

“Every year City try to improve the team and while I don’t know how it will be next season obviously the club always wants us to win titles.

“City are prepared to win titles every year, obviously the Champions League is a great competition and I think that City are doing everything to win it.”
