Sergio Aguero will cost Manchester United, City or Chelsea £52 million if they want to sign the Argentinian wonder-kid, according to Atletico Madrid’s president Enrique Cerezo.
Aguero has been linked with moves to a host of Premier league superpowers but Madrid have now gone on record stating their desire to see him stay at the club.
Cerezo told the club’s website: “He has a contract with us, we want him to stay and he is happy here. Only if someone comes and pays his buy-out clause would we then have to see what he decides.
I would be surprised if he wasn’t here next season, it is not in our plans to sell any player who is important to us,” he added.
United have been linked to Aguero since Wayne Rooney admitted he wants Sir Alex Ferguson to bring in a partner for him.
Carlos Tevez could be a draw for Man City as he and Aguero are close as they play up front together for Argentina – their partnership helped Diego Maradona’s side thrash Canada 5-0 last night.
The striker seems to be happy at the Europa League champions, though, and any club wanting to make a move will have to break the bank for him.
