In May 2006, Kun Aguero joined Spanish club Atlético Madrid for fee reported to be around €23 million, breaking the club's previous transfer record. He caused controversy early in his Atlético career by using his hands to score the winning goal against Recreativo Huelva on 14 October 2006, only his second goal for the club, with the first coming in a 4–1 away win against Athletic Bilbao on September 17. In the 2007–08 season, Aguero finished third highest scorer in La Liga, behind Dani Guiza and Luís Fabiano, with 19 goals, and was runner up in the Trofeo Alfredo Di Stéfano award. Sergio Aguero won many plaudits for his man of the match display against Barcelona in March 2008, scoring twice, assisting a goal, and winning a penalty for Atlético in a 4–2 win. Kun also scored important goals against the likes of Real Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal to help Atlético finish fourth and qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in over ten years.
Aguero was once again a regular goalscorer for Atlético in the 2008–09 season, forming a partnership with Uruguayan striker Diego Forlán, also a former Independiente striker. On 16 September, he scored his first Champions League goals in a 3–0 away win at PSV Eindhoven. In March 2009, the duo of Forlán and Aguero scored a brace each in a 4–3 win over league leaders Barcelona. Sergio Kun Aguero finished in the top ten contenders for the Pichichi Trophy which was won by his teammate Forlán. Atlético finished fourth in the league, qualifying for the following season's Champions League.

Despite not being as prolific in front of goal, Sergio Lionel Aguero had another good season in 2009–10, and was praised for his influential performances as Atlético enjoyed their most successful season in over a decade. On 3 November 2009, he scored twice against Chelsea during a 2–2 draw in the Champions League at the Vicente Calderón. Atlético were knocked out of the competition, but went on to reach the final of the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League, where Aguero assisted both goals in a 2–1 extra time win against English club Fulham. He also helped Atlético reach the final of the Spanish Cup, although this time they were not victorious, losing to Sevilla in the Camp Nou on May 19.

On 27 August 2010, Atlético Madrid captured the UEFA Super Cup by beating favorites Internazionale 2–0. Sergio Aguero provided the assist for José Antonio Reyes's opening goal and then secured the win by scoring the second. On 4 January 2011, Atlético Madrid confirmed via their official website that Aguero had signed a new contract with the club, keeping him at the Vicente Calderón until 2014. The following day he was named as the new vice-captain of Atlético, along with strike partner Diego Forlán.

The 2010–11 season was arguably Aguero's most successful for Atlético, as he scored 20 league goals for the first time in his career. Between March and May of 2011, he went on a run of seven consecutive goalscoring appearances, a feat that no other player in Europe could match during the season. Aguero's final outing for Atlético came on May 21 against Mallorca, a game in which he reached two milestones. In a 3–4 win, he scored his first career hat-trick, the second goal being his 100th for the Colchoneros. However, failure to celebrate any of the goals lead to speculation that he would be on his way out of the club.

On 23 May 2011, Sergio Aguero announced on his official website that he wanted to move from Atlético Madrid and formally asked to be released from his contract. Sergio Aguero later spoke to ESPN, where he stated that he would "not be returning to Atlético". On the same day that Kun Aguero officially became a Manchester City player, Atletico Madrid hosted a 2011–12 Europa League qualifier against Strømgodset, where a group of Atlético fans brandished "Aguero We Hope You Die" banners, in a reaction to the striker's £38 million move to Manchester City, at the Vicente Calderon on 28 July 2011. Upon his departure, Atlético used the €45 million from Kun Aguero's sale to buy Radamel Falcao as his replacement.
