London: Manchester City received a boost on the eve of the new Premier League season as Argentina striker Sergio Aguero signed a new five-year contract with the English champions.
Aguero is now tied to City until 2019 and his decision to commit his long-term future to the Eastlands club is a major bonus as they prepare to start their defence of the Premier League title at Newcastle on Sunday.
The 26-year-old's goals have played a significant role in City winning the Premier League twice in the last three years, with his most famous strike the stoppage-time effort against QPR that sealed the title on the final day of the 2011-12 season.
