Sergio Aguero Changes to No. 10 Shirt at Manchester City, Will Sign Any No. 16s

Sergio Aguero made a late—and surprise—switch to the No. 10 shirt at Manchester City, but any fans who had banked on him keeping his No. 16 jersey are in for a treat.

The Argentine takes over Edin Dzeko's shirt with the latter seemingly on the way out of the club. He was given a rousing welcome, per Sky Sports, when he arrived in Rome ahead of a switch to Roma on Friday.

Aguero, Manchester City report on their website, will make sure no fan is disappointed by the news:

The current Etihad Player of the Season and Barclays Premier League Golden Boot winner has invited supporters to send in their 2015/16 shirts with “Kun Aguero 16” for him to sign and send back.

Or, the club will supply an alternative emblazoned with the Argentine ace’s new no.10.

Aguero added that the No. 10 had a special significance to him, which, as an Argentine, is perhaps no surprise, as that was Diego Maradona's famous number.
