STRIKER HAILS BLUES PLAYERS
Aguero hints at Chelsea interest
Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero has suggested he would welcome a move to Chelsea in the close season after lavishing praise on Blues stars Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard.
Aguero has been linked with a big-money move away from the Ramon Calderon for some time and has his fair share of big name suitors.
Both Manchester clubs, Inter Milan and Real Madrid have also been strongly linked with a move for Aguero, with ‘Kun’, as he is nicknamed, telling Premium Calcio just two weeks ago that he was “very happy that a club like Inter” were interested in signing him.
But having reportedly been close to sealing a move to Stamford Bridge last summer, it would seem that Chelsea again look to be in pole position to secure the Argentina striker’s signature.
After hailing Lampard and Drogba as world leaders in their respective positions as he assessed the possibility of moving to London, it would seem that Aguero would be happy playing for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
“Chelsea are a great club,” He was quoted as saying in the Daily Express. “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.”
