REPORTS: Chelsea Close In On South American

By on June 30, 2011

Chelsea have made a new offer for Atletico Madrid’s Sergio Aguero, according to reports.

The 23-year old has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and Juventus this summer, but it is Chelsea who have stolen a march for the forward.

Kun is thought to favour a move to local rivals Real, but Atletico are keen to sell the Argentine abroad leaving the Blues favourites to land him.

Ole reports that Chelsea have submitted a second offer for Aguero after the initial offer was rejected by the Spanish outfit. The fee has yet to be disclosed but reports early on in the month suggest the Atletico president wanted up to 45m Euros for the Argentine international who have agreed to reluctantly sell the Latina forward.

Italian giants Juventus are thought to have tabled 25m Euros for the mini-maestro which was immediately rejected falling significantly short of Atletico’s evaluation.

    I don’t question Aguero’s ability, afterall, we at CFC know only to well. I don’t question he’s the style of player that would fit perfectly into AVB’s system, slotting into a front 3 and supporting and providing the likes of Torres, Drogs or Falcao/Lukaku if we get either, and popping up with a few of his own. All said, he seems almost perfect but I do question the wages he wanted when he was muted last season and whether we would be prepared to pay them. Not only is he on sky wages now, he has gone on record demanding as much again and with the tax restraints in the UK, it doesn’t bode well. That is why I see him at Real next season unless they choose not to go for him, which would mean they have got Neymar so I think it will be a question of who Real or Barca want that may decide who we get; same really goes for Sanchez/Pastore and many others I’m afraid. Cuppa T anyone?

    I believe this is a rumour. Any interest Chelsea has shown in Aguero previously has been quite limited. I don’t think they have any interest right now. There’s a much bigger chance that they will go for Neymar.

    usual real & barca get the top players and we get to fight for the rest , talk is neymar wants real & sanchez wants barca so lets just hope we get aguero & pastore before all the top players get snapped up , we may go in for benzema or villa as they will be on the fringes at there clubs once they get there new stars! at least were trying !
