Manchester City

On 28 July 2011, Aguero signed a five-year contract with Manchester City for a reported fee of £38 million.[6] At the time, he became the most expensive signing in City's history. The previous record was for Robinho's transfer fee of £32.5 million in 2008.[7] He was given the number 16 shirt, and wears Kun Aguero on his back.

He made his debut for the team on 15 August 2011, scoring the last goal in a 4-0 victory against Swansea City A.F.C. He scored his first Premier League hat-trick on 10 September 2011 against Wigan Athletic F.C. In the final game of the season against Queens Park Rangers, Aguero scored a goal in the 94th minute. He scored City's third goal in a 3-2 victory, helping the team win their first Premier League title since 1968.[8]

Aguero made his debut for the Senior team on 3 September 2006 at age 18.[9]

He scored his first international hat trick on 7 June 2015 in a 2015 Copa América warm-up game against Bolivia. Argentina won 5-0.[10]

On 16 June 2018, at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Aguero scored his first ever World Cup goal against Iceland in a 1-1 draw.[11]
