Manchester City's manager Pep Guardiola has told the club's all-time highest goalscorer, Sergio Aguero, that he has to earn a new contract at Manchester City with good performance.

Aguero 32, who returned to Premier League on Saturday in a 1-0 win against Arsenal after four months of a knee injury played just one hour of the game.

Although Guardiola believes in Aguero's quality, he still warned the striker to rediscover his form and lead the city's attack before his future at City is guaranteed.

Aguero is the best striker City has ever produced and he is the club's all-time highest goalscorer

"Sergio now has to show, like every one of us, that he deserves to continue here, keep playing well, scoring goals and winning games and after that the club and I will decide," Guardiola said of Aguero.

"But if he is playing at his level, we don't have any doubts that he is a player to stay until he decides because he is unique. He is important for us, our fans and everyone.

"But he was out four months, and he has to start training regularly and start to score goals - this is the most important thing.

"Having Aguero on the pitch, we are better; we are safer. We missed him a lot in the important moments at the end part of last season, but now is good news for us that he is back."

Aguero has just one year left in his contract, and he can be able to talk to other clubs over a transfer from January 2021. It is still unclear if the prolific striker will stay at the Etihad or not.
