Sergio Aguero is a feisty Argentinian striker who desires a fresh slate at a new club.
His current club, Manchester City where he has won 2 PL titles is losing its spark with the former Atletico Madrid man. The horizons are far and wide for a player whose transfer market value has soared since arriving in Manchester in 2011.
The Chelsea Blues have shown marked interest in signing Aguero, amongst other notable players from around the continent, as the hunt for Diego Costa’s replacement continues.
Despite Manchester City’s reluctance to let Aguero leave this summer with the board repeatedly saying that Aguero is not for sale, many pundits feel his expiry date is drawing ever closer. Although he has 3 years left on his current contract, the Manchester City boss Guardiola has shown a keen eye to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
With this in mind, given that Guardiola coached Sanchez at Barcelona, Aguero’s position in the squad is slowly vanishing.
The 29-year-old has always been known for lightning speed, intense and mesmerising dribbling ability as well as the long-shot speciality trait. Having scored 169 times in his six years at the Citizens, Aguero has destroyed many a title defence for Chelsea as well as the Manchester Devils.
Concerning behaviours for other clubs interested in Aguero is his lack of motivation to track back, unless urgently required. He has a vision for smelling dangerous situations and has been commended for his actions in these situations.
However, when counter-attacks occur he is often overly sluggish to respond with any vigour. This wouldn’t be a problem for Chelsea having signed Bakayoko and Rudiger in the coming days to bolster the back four and defensive set-up. It seems Conte’s master plan seems to slowly be materialising with the fruits of west London tempting Aguero to jump the Manchester City voyage.
