A Man City legend and one of the world's best strikers

His professional career started in July 2003 when, aged just 15 years and 13 days, he made his debut for Independiente, becoming the youngest debutant in the Argentine Premier League - a record previously held by the man who became his future father-in-law, none other than Diego Maradona.

 

Aguero won the Under-20 World Cup with Argentina in 2005, before combining with Fernando Torres at Atletico Madrid the following year.

 

His excellent club form was rewarded with a first Argentina cap in September 2006 and a year later, Aguero was the outstanding player at the 2007 Under-20 World Cup winning both the Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards, ‘El Kun’ scored six goals in seven games to clinch successive Under-20 World titles.

 

Aguero continued to thrive at Atletico was named La Liga’s best foreign player in 2008 – the only time in four years that Lionel Messi was not awarded the honour – before landing an Olympic gold medal with Argentina in 2008.

 

Appearances at the 2010 World Cup and 2011 Copa America established Aguero as a permanent fixture in the national side, and his arrival at Etihad Stadium in July 2011 broke the Club’s transfer record. 

He didn't take long to announce himself at City, scoring twice on his debut against Swansea, ending his debut season with a superb tally of 30 goals.

 

But Aguero's place in City’s history was secured when he ended the club's 44-year Premier League title wait with his goal in the 94th minute against QPR on the final day of the 2011/12 season.

 

He bagged 28 goals in 2013/14 campaign as the Blues won a second Premier League title as well as the Capital One Cup.

 

In 2014/15, he had his best season yet in terms of goals, scoring 32 to take his overall tally past 100 in all competitions. In 2015/16 he scored 29 from 42 games – achieving the 100 Premier League goals milestone in the process and he began the 2016/17 season in blistering form with 11 goals in his first six games and looks to be on course for his best season yet in the sky blue.
