Sergio Aguero is the name dominating this morning’s City headlines, as the Argentine has told reporters of his commitment to the club.
In May, the striker penned an extension to his contract which now runs to 2017, and he has again expressed how happy he is with life at the Etihad Stadium after joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
Sergio told the Guardian: "I'm very happy at City, very happy since the day I came. I knew that the project was good and in my head there is nothing else but Manchester City, so how long I'm going to be at City is just never a question.
"I'm happy here, my family's here when they come to England, all I can do is give everything I have for the club and concentrate on achieving for the club."
He added: "We will try to always do the best whether it is the Premier League, the Champions League, a cup game. We always want to win and we always want to do the best for Manchester City and the fans."
If that isn't good news to wake up to, I'm not sure what is!
Although City went down 3-1, the Frenchman is refusing to be too downhearted, arguing that they lost to the ‘best team in the world’.
He is quoted in the Daily Star as saying: “I think we played against the best team in the world there.
“I think the fans know. For the first time here I’ve seen players from another team coming off and getting a standing ovation.”
The midfielder has been wowing fans this season with his performances on the field, and ahead of the 2014 World Cup, Nasri agrees he has improved.
He added: “I think I’m getting back to my best form – apart from against Bayern.
“You cannot be good every day – unless your name is Messi. Mine isn’t – so I can have bad games.”
Finally, if you’re already counting down the days to the January transfer window, treat yourself with a scouting report on alleged City target Youri Tielemans.
The 16-year-old midfielder is said to be attracting attention from several Premier League sides, including Arsenal, as the latest star to come off the Belgium production line.
Writes Chris Wheatley: “Tielemans, who has been capped at U15, U16 and U21 level for Belgium, made his long-awaited first team debut in July against Sporting Lokeren after replacing injured midfielder Sacha Kljestan with just 25 minutes gone. He didn’t look out of place in John van den Brom’s side and dazzled Anderlecht supporters with his superb ball distribution and attacking intent.
“It was Manchester City who came closest to landing Tielemans’ signature in the summer following a recommendation from captain Vincent Kompany.
“The youngster’s parents immediately blocked the move, as they want him to finish his education in Belgium – which is the same route Kompany himself took during his time at Anderlecht.”
January may be months away, but with speculation on the increase, remember no deals are confirmed until you read it here on mcfc.co.uk!
