Pep Guardiola speaks on Aguero leaving Manchester City for Atletico Madrid

Injured Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has filmed himself again in coaching as he appears to be like to show his health to Argentina striker Jorge Sampaoli earlier than he names his World Cup squad.

The Sun says Atletico Madrid have shown increasing interest in their former hero, Etihad record scorer Aguero.

Aguero's relationship with Guardiola has been the subject of some debate after reports of clashes between the pair in the past.

Aguero, 29, joined City from Spanish side Atletico for a reported £38m in 2011 and has been linked with a return.

He has scored 21 Premier League goals for runaway champions City this season but underwent an arthroscopy in mid-April to fix a knee problem. "I didn't know it but, all respect, it looks ridiculous to me", Guardiola said of the rule.

"I don't think it's going to happen", said Guardiola.

"Last season, I said maybe 1,000 times that Sergio will stay until he decides his time is over".

"That is why I say it is not going to happen".

"I am really happy for his season and hopefully next season he will be even better".

So, who will the City boss pick for his season finale?

"The chairman and myself want him to stay a long time". "It's fantastic because we did that [break the records] in the day we always will remember - the day for Yaya".

"We want him to stay as long as possible". So, one or maybe two.

The 2017/18 Premier League season is almost over, but how much do you remember about the last 10 months of rollercoaster action? It was an old team, 10 or 11 players more than 31-years-old, and we needed to change that.

Indeed, a win at Southampton would make City's league season, statistically at least, the finest-ever in the English top-flight. "All respect", he said. "They didn't play because of my decisions". It doesn't matter they don't have medals.

"Not too much. Maybe some players are unhappy and want to leave because they don't play too much".
