Aguero: Atletico future not dependent on Europe

Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero said his decision on whether to remain at the club did not depend on qualifying for next season's Champions League.

"The club, the fans and the media know that I want to stay, even if nobody knows what can happen," the Argentina international, who has been linked in the media with Italian side Inter Milan, said at a news conference.

"Whether I stay or not does not depend on whether the team is in the Champions League," he added. "But we'll also have to see if the club needs a transfer at the end of the season."
