£35m Chelsea and City striker target alerts clubs

Next Story

Chelsea and Manchester City target Sergio Aguero will definitely be leaving Atletico Madrid this summer, with the striker revealing that a move to the Barclays Premier League may be on the cards.

"I have made clear in my statement that I do not see myself at Atletico,” Aguero said, as Chelsea and Manchester City continue to chase the star.

"I will seek the best for me, I know that my representatives are working and for now I don't want to think about it. I will do something after the Copa America, when I am able to think calmly.


"But if I said I saw myself at Atletico, I'd be lying. I'd prefer to play in Spain or England, those are the two best countries."

Aguero has long been linked with a move to Chelsea, and with Andre Villas-Boas yet to make his mark at Stamford Bridge, the star could be the big signing the young manager has been waiting to make.

But Manchester City are reportedly favourites to sign Aguero, who has a hefty price tag of £35 million over his head, The Sun claims. The 23-year old is also a target for Real Madrid, but with City boasting what appears to be an unlimited transfer budget, the club could well force Atletico to sell their star man.

Chelsea can’t be counted out of the mix yet though, with Villas-Boas targeting younger players in the hopes of rebuilding an aging squad at Stamford Bridge. And Chelsea are no strangers to outbidding rivals for stars, with the club offering a side that is well seasoned in the Champions League and very close to wining the title.
