Chelsea 'monitoring developments' with £42m Argentine superstar

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are keeping tabs on Sergio Aguero after it was revealed that his advisers had held talks with Athletico Madrid to reduce his release clause to £32 million, according to The Daily Mail.

The Argentine international, who is desperate to leave Madrid following another dismal season in the Spanish capital, has a current release clause of £42 million, a price which has scared off many potential suitors.

Reports have suggested that only Juventus are genuinely interested in Aguero at his current valuation, but a reduction in that fee could reignite Chelsea's interest.

Aguero announced his plans to leave Athletico via twitter last month and since the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid have been linked with his signature, but only Chelsea's interest has been sustained.

Like Madrid, Chelsea may have to chose between following through with their interest with Aguero or Neymar, who is mulling over a move to either of the European giants.
