Sergio Aguero had admitted that he could leave Manchester City when his contract runs out in 2019 and return to Argentina.
The prolific striker joined City in 2011, signing from Atletico Madrid, having started his career with Buenos Airies club Independiente.
During his six years in Manchester, Aguero gone to become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, breaking Eric Brook’s record of 178 goals with his strike in the Champions League win over Napoli.
Despite his affinity with City, the 29-year-old has stated that it was always his plan to return to his boyhood club when his current deal at The Etihad runs out.
There is an option for Aguero to extend his City star for a further year, but the Argentine was coy on that idea, according to the report on Sky Sports.
He said: “It came out that Milan and Real Madrid wanted me and – I don’t know where I read it – but they said, ‘They just spoiled Independiente’s dream.’
“But the idea was always to go back to Independiente when my contract with City runs out in 2019.
“I have an option to extend one more year with City where it’s the priority but it’s always an option.
“The idea is to go back. Now, I’m doing very well and hopefully we can win the cup [title], but it’s not easy.”
Aguero is currently away with Argentina on international duty, as they prepare to take on Russia and Nigeria in friendlies.
