Sergio Aguero has crushed any speculation he may leave Manchester City this summer, stating that he is happy at the club and that the Premier League champions are on a par with Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Argentinian forward, who scored the winner in City's 3-2 win over QPR which secured them the title, had been linked with a possible exit from Eastlands with Spanish champions Real reported to be interested in mounting a bid.

His City team-mate Pablo Zabaleta recently said that the club's Argentine trio, which also includes Carlos Tevez, were all happy and Aguero has now confirmed his desire to remain and build on his achievements by ruling out any move.

"I decide my future and if I say I stay, then I stay at Manchester City," Aguero told Argentine radio station Rock&Closs. "I want to continue here and I am happy."

As if to emphasis his commitment to City when asked about the possibility of a move to a club such as Barcelona or Real Madrid in the future, Aguero responded: "City are on the same level as Madrid and Barca, and that's why I want to stay and play in the Champions League here."

It has also been reported in Spain that Aguero's City team-mate David Silva is a target of Real boss Jose Mourinho. Aguero said of his team-mate: "Playing with him is easy. He's a phenomenon."
