Sergio Aguero has admitted there were other clubs keen on him before he decided to sign a new contract at Manchester City this summer.
The Argentina international striker was linked with a return to Spain with Real Madrid, but the 25-year-old says his first choice was always to stay at the Etihad Stadium.
Aguero joined City for £38 million in 2011 and became an instant hero in his first season, memorably hitting the goal that won City the Premier League title in 2012.
The striker, who got his campaign up and running with a goal in the 4-0 victory over Newcastle last Monday, said he had no hesitation in putting pen to paper on a four-year deal in May.
"One or two offers might have been around, but I was not interested in them," he told The Sun.
"The thing was to stay where I was enjoying my football. I am very happy with Manchester City. I love Manchester. I have signed for another year. I'm happy to be here as I've been treated so well."
Aguero says City hope to compete on all four fronts this season as they aim to improve on a disappointing 2012-13 campaign in which they finished a distant second in the league, were knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage and lost to underdogs Wigan in the FA Cup final.
"We want all four [trophies]," he added. "Champions League, Premier League, Capital One Cup, FA Cup. Let's hope so.
"In 2011-12, it was great to win the title in my first year. Last season was not so good. We disappointed. We got to an FA Cup final, but that was no use because we could not carry off the trophy."
