City Chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak, said: “Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the last 10 years cannot be overstated. His legend will be indelibly etched into the memories of everyone who loves the Club and maybe even in those who simply love football.
“This is not yet the moment for farewell words and speeches. There is still much to achieve in the remainder of the time we have with Sergio, and we look forward to his contributions to the challenges which lay ahead.
“In the meantime, it gives me great pleasure to announce that we will be commissioning an artist to create a statue of Sergio to live at the Etihad Stadium alongside the ones under construction for Vincent [Kompany] and David [Silva]. And we look forward to the opportunity to bid Sergio a fitting farewell at the end of the season.”
With fans expected to be allowed to attend the final league games of the season, City say they will be pay tribute to Aguero on the final day’s match against Everton at the Etihad.
