Aguero willing to leave Atletico

Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero – linked with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United – has hinted he would be willing to leave the Spanish outfit next summer.

The Argentine starlet has pledged his allegiance to Atletico until June but has not ruled out a move at the end of the season.

“I don’t know anything. I have said to my club that I am not going to move until June. After that I will see what I will do,” he said.

“For the moment I don’t want to think of anything other than to get us qualified for Europe.”

Aguero netted a brace against Chelsea in the Champions League group stages and the Blues appear to be the strongest candidates for the 21-year-old's signature.

With Didier Drogba and Salamon Kalou set to miss the month of January due to the African Cup of Nations, Aguero is being lined up as the ideal replacement for Carlo Ancelotti's men.

Aguero added: “Chelsea couldn’t do an offer for me last summer but now has interest in me again.

“At Atletico I feel at home but if the club has to transfer me I will have to leave.”

Atletico are languishing in 17th position in La Liga after securing just their second win of the season at the weekend.

Aguero’s double helped the rojiblancos seal a comfortable 4-0 victory over Espanyol as the Argentinean international took his tally to six goals in 12 appearances this term.

The former Independiente star has a £54 million buy-out clause in his contract but, with Atletico’s reported mounting debts, it looks increasingly likely that Aguero could be leaving the Vicente Calderon sooner rather than later.
