Aguero: Open to a move to Maradona's former club Napoli in the future
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is open to a move to Italian club Napoli in the future, says his agent.
The Argentina international joined the ambitious Premier League outfit from Atletico Madrid in the summer and has already settled in English football, scoring six goals in four league appearances so far.
On Wednesday Aguero will make his Champions League debut for City against Diego Maradona's former team Napoli in a Group A fixture, with the Manchester club said to be one of the favourites for the competition.
Aguero's agent, Bruno Satin, has now spiced up Wednesday evening's clash at the Etihad Stadium by claiming that the 23-year-old has a soft spot for the Neapolitan club in his heart and could move to Naples sometime in his career.
"Aguero has a special place in his heart for Napoli," Satin told Radio Crc. "Tomorrow night (Wednesday) will be a special game because Napoli have come back in the Champions League.
"Aguero wants to play all the matches (for Man City) because he loves football and has fun on the pitch. Sergio is not afraid of anyone and Manchester City are one of the favourite teams in the Champions League.
"(Manager) Roberto Mancini has pushed to have my player at all costs. He costs a lot but he is proving to have everything to make the difference. The fact that the coach rates him highly is an added value for him.
Happy at City
"We follow what happens in Naples closely because Napoli are an important club with an important history.
"There may be a possibility in the future to exchange players, but for now Aguero is good at City.
"(Gokhan) Inler has been a great addition to Napoli, (Ezequiel) Lavezzi is also extraordinary. (Walter) Mazzarri is a good coach and it will be exciting to watch the game tomorrow (Wednesday) to see how and if Napoli are able to stop Manchester City."
In the other match in the group, Spanish side Villarreal host German giants Bayern Munich.
