Chelsea 'serious' about signing 169-goal striker this summer

Sergio Aguero tweet

Sky Sports News HQ understands it will be very hard for Chelsea to sign Aguero with Manchester City reluctant to let him leave.

Both Guardiola and City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarek have always maintained that they did not want to sell the hugely-popular star. "It has never been in doubt". That surprise came just weeks after Conte told Diego Costa, the club's top scorer last season, that he would not be in his plans at Chelsea in the future.

Speaking earlier this summer, the latter said: "I've read a lot of the speculation on this and it's ridiculous".

And one of those targets is understood to be Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero. We are a team that aspires to win every competition we compete in.

His future at the Etihad under Pep Guardiola was put in doubt earlier in the year after he lost his starting place to Gabriel Jesus.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is set to join Milan and Borussia Dortmund will only wait until the end of the week to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Argentine striker has scored a magnificent 122 goals in 181 Premier League appearances for City so we would be astonished if the champions were not interested in Aguero.

Aguero has lifted two Premier League titles with the Citizens during this period, and it is suggested that the Citizens would be reluctant to part ways with their marksman this summer.

Aguero was signed from Atletico Madrid for £38m in 2011 and has three years left on his current City deal.
