Report: Manchester City to start contract discussions with £230,000-a-week player
Discussions over Sergio Aguero’s contract situation are said to be planned at the end of the season, according to reports. Sun.
According to an exclusive report from The Sun, Aguero and Fernandinho are the two players City are planning to negotiate contracts.
However, the report later went on to say that in order to avoid off-field distractions – no negotiations would begin until the end of the season.
“The Sun” said Aguero’s current weekly salary is 230,000 pounds and is unwilling to take a significant pay cut to stay at the Etihad.
The Argentina international has had a poor season at Manchester City, with injuries and a lack of goals as the main problems.
Aguero has played just eight Premier League games so far this season, only one of which has started in the Champions League.
However, the experienced centre forward has made four substitute appearances in Europe.

Aguero has scored just once in the Premier League this season so far, with another two in the Champions League.
It’s hard to see how Manchester City could justify offering the centre-forward an improved contract on a season-by-season basis.
The 32-year-old’s struggle to stay fit means he is currently only playing a combined 440 minutes in the Champions League and Premier League.
The veteran’s career hasn’t been helped by a sharper-looking Gabriel Jesus this season, with the young Brazilian scoring 12 goals in all competitions so far this season.
