Following Manchester City’s defeat to Real Madrid thanks to a last minute Cristiano Ronaldo goal, blue hero Sergio Aguero revealed to journalists in the Spanish capital that the only reason why he went to City was because he had no choice.

“If Madrid had wanted me, I would be playing here,” he said. “I had no choice but to sign with Manchester City. I never said that I wouldn’t play with Real Madrid because I didn’t want to betray Atletico.”
