Chelsea are reportedly chasing a sensational deal for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
AS newspaper journalist Manu Sainz claims Pep Guardiola has already given the green light to the shock move this summer. Chelsea are searching far and wide for a new striker after Antonio Conte dumped Diego Costa by text. The Blues were beaten by Manchester United in the race for Romelu Lukaku and are finding things tough in their pursuit of Alvaro Morata. Italy international Andrea Belotti has also been linked with Chelsea, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be available for a whopping £70m.
However, Sainz reckons that Conte is targeting Aguero instead, with the Argentine arguably the best forward in the Premier League.
Aguero has scored an incredible 169 times in just 253 appearances during six years at Cit and his clinical finishing, combined with the skills of Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian, could be just what Chelsea need to successfully defend their title.
