Kun Aguero joined the youth system of Independiente at the age of nine. He started playing for the side, becoming the youngest player to debut in the division at 15 years and 35 days (on 5 July 2003 against Club Atlético San Lorenzo de Almagro), breaking the record previously established by Diego Maradona in 1976, when Independiente's coach, Oscar Ruggeri sent Aguero onto the field as a substitute for Emanuel Rivas in the 69th minute of the match. His performance was well received by the press, Despite his early debut, Aguero was not selected again by Ruggeri, and his replacement Osvaldo Sosa, for the remainder of 2002–03 season, having only made just one appearance in the Torneo Clausura. Following the arrival of coach Jose Omar Pastoriza, seven months after Aguero's first match he returned to the club's first-team in 4–2 win against Peru's Cienciano during the group stages of the 2004 Copa Libertadores. This meant that Aguero also became the youngest player to participate in the Copa Libertadores, a record that he held for three years. One month later, Kun Aguero again featured in a Copa Libertadores fixture against Ecuador's El Nacional. On 19 June, for the first time, Aguero played a full 90 minute match for Independiente against Atlético de Rafaela during the Torneo Clausura. Kun scored his first goal for Independiente in a 2–2 draw against Estudiantes on 26 November, with a 22nd minute shot from outside the penalty area. Kun Aguero became a regular in the club's first-team, being selected for the Argentina U-20 squad for the 2005 FIFA U-20 World Cup, which Argentina won. During the 2005–06 season, Aguero scored 18 goals in 36 league appearances, having missed two games due to suspension. In a 4–0 win against Racing on 11 September, Aguero dribbled from inside of his own half and scored Independiente's fourth goal with a left footed shot. His first red card came in the Torneo Apertura, after slapping an opponent in a match against Tiro Federal. His outstanding performances during the Torneo Apertura attracted interest from a number of big name European clubs, and after months of speculation, Aguero announced on TV in April that he intended to leave the club at the end of the season. Before the end of the season, there had already been speculation of a possible transfer to Atlético Madrid. With his performances being lauded by the press, there was talk of a possible call up for Aguero for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. In a 2–0 away victory against Olimpo de Bahia Blanca in round 17 of the Torneo Clausura, Aguero received his fifth yellow card of the season. This prevented him from playing his last game for Independiente in a fixture against Boca Juniors in Avellaneda one week later. The yellow card brought tears to the eyes of Aguero, as television cameras recorded. Sergio Kun Aguero, who scored Independiente's second goal of the match later said "I think that it was my last goal for Independiente". He played his last game for Independiente, two weeks later, in a 2–0 away defeat to Rosario Central. On 30 May, Aguero officially transferred to Atlético Madrid for €20 million, marking a record for the Bank of Spain.
