Argentine superstar snubs Spurs

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur target Sergio Aguero has rejected speculation linking him with a move away from Athletico Madrid, claiming he wants to stay at the club indefinitely.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a host of Europe's biggest clubs, including Tottenham, who bid for the Argentine hitman in the January transfer window.

But with three years still to run on his current deal, Aguero has moved quickly to quash any rumours of unrest at the Vicente Calderon.


He told the club's official website: "I want to stay with Atletico for as long as I can. I am very comfortable at the club now. I will try to keep winning titles here because that's what every player wants. I signed until 2014 and I hope to stay beyond this year.

"It's always appreciated if top clubs are interested in you. There are many comments that have been raised about my future but I'm quiet, they don't affect me. I'm honest with myself."

Other clubs linked with Aguero have been neighbours Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United, but Spurs, who were looking to bring both him and strike partner Diego Forlan to the club this summer in a £40 million deal, were favourites to land the forward.

This snub is a blow to Harry Redknapp's summer transfer plans as he looks to rejig his forward line with Roman Pavlyuchenko and Robbie Keane both expected to leave White Hart Lane this summer.
