Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero is well regarded as one of the world's brightest young talents, with speculation constantly linking him with a move to England.
The 22-year-old Argentina international is now set to become the subject of a summer transfer tussle between Manchester United and Chelsea following recent comments from his agent.
Having turned in a number of scintillating performances in La Liga again this season, Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has earmarked Aguero as the man he wants to lead his line at Old Trafford from next season.
But Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti will provide Manchester United with competition for his signature, after being tasked by Blues owner Roman Abramovich to 'freshen up' an ageing Stamford Bridge squad.
Sport.co.uk reports how Aguero's representative Bruno Satin, added to speculation he will leave the Vicente Calderon in the summer by refusing to rule out a move to the Barclays Premier League.
"Players like Sergio [Aguero] are always being tracked by the world's top clubs," said Satin.
"He is still only 22 and he has had only four years in Europe playing at a club which is not a regular in the Champions League."
With Manchester United yesterday confirming their place in this year's Champions League final with Barcelona, a move to Old Trafford may be the more attractive option for Aguero.
But with Chelsea's recent revival under Ancelotti, they look set to push United all the way in pursuit of the domestic title – so that may be a foundation for the Blues to convince Aguero his future would be best served at Stamford Bridge.
"Obviously the boy would like to play football at the highest level," Satin continued.
"Chelsea and Manchester United are big clubs, and they monitor him. But there is nothing concrete at the minute; we have to look at things in the summer."
