Aguero: Stuff next year, I want the title now!

Sergio Aguero is relishing the chance to finally strike up a partnership with Carlos Tevez and revive Manchester City’s title hopes.
Argentina duo Aguero and Tevez started together for City for only the second time in Wednesday’s emphatic 4-0 win over West Brom.
Tevez’s decision to go AWOL back home for three months denied the compatriots the chance to strike up a winning combination up front.
But after Aguero scored two and made one for Tevez in the win that threw the title race open, the pair are ready to feed off each other.
With Mario Balotelli serving a three-match ban and Edin Dzeko out of favour, Mancini is relying on his two South Americans to deliver up front.
And Aguero reckons he and Tevez can score the goals to chase Manchester United all the way to the finish line.
“Obviously Carlos is a fantastic player, like Edin [Dzeko] and Mario [Balotelli],” he said.
“But because we play quite regularly sometimes in Argentina, he knows my movements, so we seem to do it quite well.
“The most important thing is that we are all happy that we won against West Brom.”
City’s win, coupled with Manchester United’s shock defeat at Wigan, has seen the gap between the title rivals reduced to five points.
Roberto Mancini’s side can cut that deficit to two points with victory at Norwich in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off, before United host Aston Villa on Sunday.
Despite United remaining in pole position, Aguero admitted City must continue to win and push Sir Alex Ferguson’s side all the way.
“We have to continue down our road and, when United come to us, we will see,” said Aguero. “It’s important now to go to Norwich and win if we want to carry on going forward.
“United can drop points at any moment, as happened at Wigan. It gives us more confidence to fight for the title.
“We’ve had a great season, but there’s so much more to come from this team.
"I’ve been told we’ve broken some historic records and that’s already an achievement. But it’s important to respect our progress an ongoing process. We want to win the title and we will continue towards that aim.
“Why wait until next season if we can win it now? We’re fighting until the very end.
“We all want to make it and although it won’t be easy, we believe we can win the Premier League this season.
“Winning titles is about never giving up - and we will never give up.
"I want to win it this season, and then many more with City after that.”
With 26 goals in his debut English season, Aguero has emerged as a target for Real Madrid - but the £38million star said he is happy at City.
“As for moving to England, I feel my family and I have adapted really well to living in Manchester,” he said.
“I’m very happy here and I want to continue to be here.”
