The London giants are reportedly in pole position to seal the transfer of Man City centre-forward Sergio Aguero as he seems to remain in the PL. The 32-year-old striker will be leaving Man City at the end of the campaign and it is not yet clear where he will be playing next term, but several big names have been linked with him.
The Blues now look to be ahead of big clubs like Barcelona, Juventus and PSG in the bid to win the race for Sergio’s signature. This could be good news for Chelsea, who look in urgent need of fresh striking options after a poor first campaign at London club from Timo Werner.
Although Sergio maybe past his peak, he still looks like he could be a useful option at least on a short-term basis, and it would be great to see him extend what has been a great career in English football. The Argentine is currently fourth on the list of all-time leading scorers in the PL, and he’s bound to climb even higher if he ends up at Chelsea.
It might well be that Argentina international would make more sense for Barcelona, where he’d get the chance to enjoy a slightly slower pace of the game in the twilight of his career, whilst also being able to link up with fellow countryman Lionel Messi.
