Chelsea and City target ready for decision over move – reports

Published Add your comment

Manchester City and Chelsea target Sergio Aguero is now fielding interest from Juventus, as the forward looks to make a decision on where to move next season, according to talkSPORT.

Aguero told Athletico Madrid that he was planning on moving at the end of the season, and with a £40 million get out clause in his contract, the star looks set to head for a big money club.

"I said long ago that when I wanted to go, I would say so publicly. And the time has come," a statement from Aguero said at the time.


"So I keep to my word and here I am. I find it hard to leave Atletico. It hurts and saddens me.

"I've thought long and hard and I am convinced that I must be true to myself. I do not think I put a ceiling on the ability to keep learning, to keep growing.

"After five intense years, this stage for me personally is over and I have to give way to a new one.

"I'm about to turn 23 and I have everything before me. Suffice it to say that this is not an economic issue but strictly a sporting one.”

Chelsea were looking to be front runners for Aguero’s signature, with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich putting the Argentinian at the top of his transfer wishlist.

But Chelsea are facing competition from Manchester City, who are possibly the only other Barclays Premier League club who can easily cover the £40 million fee for Aguero. City have made it clear that they are only looking to sign a few players this summer, and Aguero is one of those players.

But a move to Juventus is looking more likely now, with Aguero looking set to definitely leave Spain.
