Speaking on this new contract, the striker smiled: “The reality seems to be that ever since I came here, during every close season, there have always been rumours suggesting that I might be returning to Spain.

“People hear this stuff flying around and they take it seriously but I can tell the fans and everyone at City to relax, I’m going to be here until I see out my contract.

During the offseason, City has extended long-term deals to Samir Nasri, Aleksandar Kolarov, Vincent Kompany and David Silva.
