It appears so. That is if you trust the quotage being thrown about by the Daily Express.
Aguero appeared on the verge of moving to Chelsea last summer - if you believe the press - but a deal never materialized. But now it seems the 21-year-old Argentinian whose child may well own the world one day is ready to leave Madrid, with Chelsea his preferred destination.
Aguero is quoted as saying:
Chelsea are a great club. They have become one of the most feared in Europe over recent years. I look at players like Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard and they have been – and still are – the best players in their positions in the world. I could really learn from players like that, there
is no doubt.
London would be a really amazing city to live in as well, myself and my wife could be really happy there. Carlos Tevez is doing really well at Manchester City but, for me, it is about joining a club who are ready to challenge for honours. City are not ready yet.
Inter are a great club, but it is agreed that, over the last five years, the Premier League has been the strongest.
Believe it? If so, thoughts?
Update: The interview has apparently been denied by Atletico Madrid themselves.
Translated from Mundo Atléti ...
"There has been a new twist on the future of Sergio Aguero. The British newspaper the Daily Express posted on its website about Aguero's alleged statements in which the Argentinian praised the city of London and Chelsea. 'I could learn from players like them,' said the newspaper about what the attacker supposedly said, he also 'thought about Lampard and Drogba, two of the stars of Chelsea.
'London would be an amazing city to live, in which both my wife and I would be very happy,' the newspaper attributed the Atletico striker words in the English capital.
MD contacted the communication department of Atletico Madrid, which categorically denied the statements of the Argentina international, who has not granted any interview to the English paper. The tabloid newspaper has been considered to have dreamed up the statement that at no time did the Kun Agüero say."
