Aguero relieved to avoid last day drama of Manchester City's 2012 triumph

Pep Guardiola's side had won 24 hours earlier at Tottenham Hotspur and De Bruyne isn't concerned about how the title was eventually secured.

Can it get any better than this? It is important to believe because Manchester City is not like United or Chelsea or Arsenal - you know, the big clubs in England who have a big history behind them. We are good too, like the other ones.' And maybe that helps us. Then we can think about the World Cup and next season.

And with the average age of the squad having reduced significantly under Pep Guardiola's watch, De Bruyne, a PFA Player of the Year nominee, is hopeful this is the start of something special.

In light of Neymar's game-changing move to Paris Saint-Germain and widespread knowledge of City's financial power, the signings won't come cheap.

Whatever the reason, City will likely hit the transfer market hard again in the offseason and target one or two big signings to complement an already deep and star-studded squad.

Guardiola has received huge praise this season for the quality of football City have played throughout the season.

Their triumph is dominating the top tier in England has also netted City's stars nearly £10m in bonus payments, with key playmaker Kevin De Bruyne believed to be in line to bag himself a handsome £500,000 for winning the league.

"This is my third title with City and it's just a relief not to have to wait (until) the final day this time", Aguero told City's Twitter account.

'It's been a pleasure to play with this team and be part of everything we've achieved this season.

Of course it's been a successful season, because they've won the league and won it in style and they've won it comfortably.

The title success came at the end of a tough week when City were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and blew a two-goal lead at home to United wrecking their Manchester derby title party.

No doubt Guardiola will have a few new tricks for next season to keep his players - and his opponents - on their toes. "That's one thing they need to improve on".

Guardiola has long since been open to extending his £15million-a-year contract but did not want to enter talks until he had made a significant mark at the club. But maybe it will be a lesson for the future for them and next season.

Kompany said after winning the league that there is so much more potential to be unlocked in the blue half of Manchester.
