Sergio Aguero is staying at Manchester City, although talks over a contract extension have yet to begin, the player's agent has said.

It would be that relationship which makes any move for Aguero to Arsenal at all viable.

The Argentinean striker is a cult hero at the Etihad and still managed to score 30 goals a year ago but he failed to totally convince Guardiola with Gabriel Jesus preferred up front at times during the second half of the season.

Vitoria Setubal, where Felix Mourinho played and later worked as coach and club director, said he died Sunday. As Goal reported, the Portugal worldwide former club Belenenses confirmed his death on their Twitter account.

City are among a number of Europe's elite clubs to have been alerted to Sanchez's contract situation, and Guardiola has made him his number one target. But he thinks Aguero's poor injury record in recent years means his old side would come out of the deal second best. "I would be surprised". Perhaps most importantly, Sanchez hasn't so much as publicly stated a desire to remain at the club, which, from the outside, appears to have left his future in even greater doubt.

Aguero scored 33 goals in all competitions while Sanchez bagged 30 - though netted more in the Premier League.

Arsenal have said that they would rather sell Sanchez overseas than to a rival but a deal like this could be the sort of thing to change that stance.

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said , "This administration never ceases to amaze me". The president's tweets on Thursday left open the possibility that the conversations may have been taped without his knowledge.

Talks with Arsenal have stalled so far, with the Gunners unwilling to sell to a domestic rival, but the Daily Star claim that City have sweetened the deal by offering Aguero in exchange.

The uncertainty surrounding Sanchez's future has clouded the early weeks of Arsenal's summer - but team-mate Mustafi is desperate to see him stick around.

Aguero seemed to have fallen out of favour at City and Gabriel Jesus appears to be Pep's preferred man up front.
