Sergio Aguero is determined to pursue his career in the Premier League and Chelsea are in an excellent position to secure the hottest free transfer of this summer.
The greatest goalscorer in Manchester City history will leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season, ending a decade of excellent service.
City announced on Monday that they will mark Aguero’s contribution to the club by building a statue for him.

But leaving City does not necessarily mean he is leaving the English game. Agüero is getting offers from around the world, including Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, but his preference would be to stay in the Premier League as the 32-year-old believes he still has a lot to offer in this country.
Chelsea wanted to sign Aguero in 2011 when he played for Atletico Madrid and they are one of the few clubs who can afford the over £ 13 million salary he has led at City, but others who have the financial means – Manchester United and Liverpool – don’t sit at the table.
Agüero would never ruin the relationship he has with City fans by moving across town, and Liverpool’s main goal is to sign a new center-back this summer, considering Ibrahima Konate and Ben White of RB Leipzig’s Brighton .
However, Aguero wants to stay in this country because he feels he has more to offer English football
However, the idea that Aguero is still playing in the Premier League is intriguing, and Chelsea are determined to bring in more firepower with Timo Werner, last summer’s big addition, who is still struggling to adjust to the division.
City will sign a new striker this summer. They remain enthusiastic about Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Halaand – whose representatives were in Barcelona and Madrid on Thursday – but Sportsmail understands they have other options including Andre Silva from Eintracht Frankfurt and Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan.
However, City is saying goodbye to one of the best ever players in the Premier League and Aguero is angry that the relationship ends in this way. Sportsmail reported on March 13 that he was confused by the lack of clarity about his future, but it was addressed by Guardiola and the club early this week.
