"I will leave Atletico when I want, I will decide the day not the club, nor my agent."

The Argentine ace was strongly linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

Spurs were reported to have lodged a £38.5million offer on Sunday evening but a deal failed to materialise.

Instead, Aguero penned a two-and-a-half-year contract extension at the Vicente Calderon as the South American committed his foreseeable future to the La Liga side.

But the highly sought-after 22-year-old claims he alone decides where he plays his football.


"I will leave Atletico when I want to," said Aguero, who has allegedly reduced his buy-out clause to facilitate a move in the future. "I will decide the day not the club, nor my agent.

"If I wanted to leave the club, I wouldn't have renewed my contract as I would have been free to leave in 11 months.

"I am really happy about the extension and now we can move on. I am tied to Atletico because they have always treated me well."

Aguero admitted that it would be difficult for the club to finish in the top four this season and qualify for the UEFA Champions League, as they are currently 11 points behind fourth-placed Valencia.

"All I am focused on now is doing well with Atletico and trying to get the points we need," added the striker, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent seasons.

"Our objective (the top four) is far away but it is still possible as there are lots of points to play for this season."
