Chelsea free transfer ‘tempting’ Sergio Aguero as Man City striker looks to break Shearer’s Premier League goals record

SERGIO AGUERO will consider staying in the Premier League as reports suggest a move to Chelsea is on the cards.

At the end of the season, the striker will leave Manchester City when his contract expires after a ten-year stay at the Etihad.

Despite turning 33 in the coming summer and a disappointing season in terms of fitness and form, Aguero is said to want a move to a top club.

Stamford Bridge is described as a ‘tempting’ destination by the Evening Standard, along with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

Any club bidding for his services would not have to pay a transfer fee, leading to a sizeable demand in terms of salary – of around £250,000-a-week.

Chelsea are reportedly in the running for a move at the end of the season, something the player is said to be aware of.

And Aguero is thought to be highly motivated by the prospect of breaking the Premier League goal record.

Currently on 181 strikes, he is 79 behind Alan Shearer’s leading tally of 260.

The Argentine has averaged just over 18 goals per season for City, a ratio which will require around five years to catch the Newcastle legend.


Thomas Tuchel talked up Aguero as a ‘world-class player’ when questioned on a move for a forward recently.

Erling Haaland has also been linked to Chelsea yet the coach opted against confirming his interest.

He said: “There is big news around [Haaland] and his agent.

“It seems like they are creating a race for the player and I will fully accept this a player for Borussia Dortmund, a promising player of course.

“He isn’t our player and is not in our squad. So, we will not comment on anything else regarding Haaland.

“You can ask about Aguero too but it’s the same answer as Haaland. We have full respect for Manchester City and for Sergio Aguero, who is a big player for them.

“There are no words needed for me about the achievements of this guy, he is a world-class player.”

One team who will not be signing Aguero is Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed at the weekend that bringing players across the city was not an option, with the player reportedly also not keen.
