The 32-year-old Argentine striker is set to leave Manchester City at the end of the season after an impactful decade-long spell at the Etihad.
Aguero signed off his final Premier League appearance for City in style after he came off the bench and scored a brace in his side's 5-0 thrashing of Everton on Sunday.
The outgoing City star's brace allowed him to surpass Rooney as the player who has scored the most times for a single Premier League club.

Now, some fans have staunchly argued that Aguero should be ranked ahead of Rooney as a better player.

Aguero has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window ahead of his current City deal expiring in June.
Guardiola has hinted that the City legend is "close" to signing with the Spanish club and "playing alongside the best player of all time, [Lionel] Messi."
The 50-year-old former Barcelona boss told BBC Sport: "Maybe I reveal a secret.
"Maybe he is close to agreeing a deal for the club of my heart -- for Barcelona. He is going to be playing alongside the best player of all time, Messi.
"I'm pretty sure he is going to enjoy. And maybe Barcelona are stronger and stronger with him on the pitch."
Aguero captured five Premier League titles, six League Cups and an FA Cup en route to becoming City's all-time top scorer.
The Barcelona target could close out his illustrious City career with a Champions League winners' medal should his side beat Chelsea in the final on 29th May.
