Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero claims that he would have moved to Real Madrid if they had shown any interest in him. The Argentine striker moved to City in the summer of 2011 when the Premier League side paid the £38million release clause in his contract with Real’s local rivals Atletico.
He has since been linked with Real Madrid, but he claims he would have moved to the Spanish giants had they showed any interest.
“If Real Madrid had been interested in me, then I would be here,” Aguero said. “I had no option but to join City.
“I want to take this opportunity to refute the information where I supposedly said that I would never play for Real Madrid because I played for Atletico. It was published in an English newspaper.”
Aguero has played just seven minutes football this season after picking up an injury in City’s opening Premier League game against Southampton; however, he was an unused substitute in last night’s 3-2 defeat to Real in the Champions League.
“Right now, I’m playing for City and not thinking about anything else,” added Aguero and he later took to his Twitter feed to clarify his comments.
“Just to make clear and well understood what I meant – I’m very happy to be in @MCFC,” he Tweeted.
“It’s the best decision I could have taken.
“I feel comfortable and loved at @MCFC – it’s a project I feel very involved in.
“We want more titles and we’ll get them!”
