Sergio Agüero's spending his last days in Manchester City, a club in which he is a legend and with which he will play this weekend the great final of the Champions League, the great title that he lacks, against Chelsea. Then he won absolutely everything that he had in dispute. 

Before his departure to play for Lionel Messi's Barcelona, Kun chose his "heir" at the English club and although he hesitated a bit, he opted for the youthful Phil Foden, author of 16 goals and 10 assists this season.

"I think the number 10 jersey I wore should be given to Phil Foden," said the 32-year-old forward, who emerged from Independiente of Avellaneda, in one of his Twich live regulars. He did then also cite the Belgian Kevin de Bruyne as the potential wearer of the most emblematic number of all.

Sergio Agüero's numbers in Manchester City

Sergio Agüero played a decade in Manchester City. He arrived in July 2011, from Atlético Madrid, and in his first game - against Swansea - he already put it. He was the first of the 257 he scored among all competitions in 384 games played.

The most celebrated of all his goals was the famous 93:20, known for the minute and second in which he declared victory over Queens Park Rangers that gave City the 2012 Premier League title, the first of his story. So important was that definition that the club dedicated a documentary to him - called 93:20 - in which several of his teammates speak.

Agüero is also the top scorer in the club's history, followed by Erik Brook (1928-1940) who has 177; he is the second player with the most titles for the Cityzens, with 13 (one less than David Silva); he is the top foreign scorer in the Premier League (with 183, eight more than Thierry Henry); and he's also the fourth leading scorer in the Premier, surpassed only by Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Andy Cole.
