According to AS, Atlético president Enrique Cerezo confirmed yesterday that Sergio Agüero’s contract extension could be a done deal by next month.
“Kun’s renovation, as well as those of several other players, is being studied and we are looking into the possibilities of having him renew for another three, four or five years,” said Cerezo.
The club will not settle for less than a three year extension for the 22-year old. The Argentine striker’s agents are expected to meet with Atleti officials sometime next month in order to work out the details on the potential deal.
Kun’s current contract expires in June 2012 and contains a buyout clause of €60m that will likely carry over into the new agreement.
