Sergio Aguero’s Speculated Switch From Atletico Madrid To Chelsea Back On


Premier League heavyweights Chelsea intend to close their summer transfer window business on a high with the €48 million (£42m) acquisition of Atletico Madrid’s Sergio Aguero, reports People Sport.

The Blues have long been linked with a swoop for the individual accolade magnet, 21, who has an apparent €57m (£50m) price tag on his head.

Despite Carlo Ancelotti’s 100 per cent record in English football – a Community Shield triumph and three successive league victories – the Italian tactician is allegedly intent on adding to his ranks, and Aguero heads the shortlist of candidates.

The Argentine, though, has already featured for Atletico in the Champions League, and the club are also, according to AS,  adamant on offering their attacker a new contract before interest in the No.10 becomes too burdensome. 

Prior press reports had intimated that Chelsea could supplement their offer by including Deco, who struggled with injuries and form last season, but is a proven Primera Division player. 

The Portuguese, though, has begun the current campaign in exemplary form, and Ancelotti may be loathe to allow the two-time Champions League winner a Stamford Bridge exit.
