• AS Journalist Claims Chelsea Want to Sign Sergio Aguero & Guardiola Has 'Given OK' to Transfer

    News Sun 16 Jul 2017

    ​​AS journalist Manu Sainz has claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

    The reporter added that City boss Pep Guardiola has “already given the OK” to the potential transfer.

    Sainz’s claim comes as Chelsea boss Antonio Conte searches for a striker to replace Diego Costa, who has been informed that he is not in the club’s plans for next season and appears almost certain to leave this summer.

    The Blues have been strongly linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as the likes of Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti.

    Chelsea missed out on prime target Romelu Lukaku, who opted to join Manchester United last week, and are in the hunt for a proven goalscorer.

    Aguero has been prolific for City since arriving from Atletico Madrid in 2011, although at 29-years-old and injury prone, it could be that youngster Gabriel Jesus begins to overshadow the Argentine at the Etihad.

    Despite his injury hampered 2016-17 season, Aguero still managed an impressive 20 Premier League goals in 25 starts.

    It remains to be seen whether Chelsea are set to make an approach for the forward, and what demands in terms of price would be made by City.

    Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, however, dismissed the possibility of an Aguero exit at the end of last season. 

    “I’ve read a lot about the speculation and it’s ridiculous,” he said. “Sergio Agüero is one of the best players in the world and we are a team that aspires to win in every competition we compete in. Having Sergio Agüero as part of the squad is an absolute must and it has never been in doubt.”
