Sergio Aguero. A player that is very well known in English Football, where he is taking the Premier League by storm.
But the question is, can he match the stardom that both Messi and Ronaldo possess?
The Argentine international has been one of City’s standout players since moving to the Etihad Stadium in 2011, winning both the Premier League title and the club’s Player of the Year award twice.
If you want goals, Sergio is the man to look to. With his skilful runs, wonderful pace and his brilliant finishing ability, there is no question that he is the complete striker.
Since making his debut in 2011, the former Atletico Madrid scored 79 in the league, more than any other player and 11 times more than Wayne Rooney.
79 – Sergio Aguero has scored 79 PL goals since debuting for Man City, more than any other player in the league. Marksman.

It’s very difficult to envisage how another present Premier League striker will challenge his goalscoring form. City have Wilfred Bony, a much more hold up play striker. The balance of both of them could prove to be a very good partnership come the end of the season.
Aguero and Lionel Messi have both been included in the Argentina squad for next month’s friendlies with Bolivia and Mexico. However there had been reports that the four-time Ballon d’Or winner had asked Gerardo Martino to be excused from the Albiceleste’s next two outings and was even considering his future with the national team, after being upset by the flak he came in for after his country’s loss to Chile in the final of this year’s Copa America.
This will be a blow for the national team but eventually Aguero will become the main man in the blue and white stripes. The 27-year-old may have to play as a lone striker, which he suits well. However, there will be more pressure for Sergio to handle, only time will tell if be can bring his Premier League form into the upcoming fixtures.
Against Chelsea yesterday, he scored a superb first-half opener linking up with Toure and being able to control it so well to slot it past the helpless Asmir Begović. It is the close control that makes him the goalscorer he is today, a natural and rare skill that proves to be very useful coming up against defenders.
It was a very well earnt moment for Aguero as Begovic performed well early on and a good one of that for his team, who went on to win the game 3-0 against Jose’s men.
Chelsea will find it hard this season to hold on to the title if Aguero doesn’t get injured. He will know how important his goals are if they are to become Champions once again.
Will Sergio Aguero fire Manchester City to the title this season?
