Agüero set to join EPL giants next season?

Agüero set to snub offers from Barcelona and PSG to join EPL giants next season

April 7, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
Surprisingly, the Argentine striker seems to be keen on playing for another Premier League club once his contract with the Cityzens expires.

With Manchester City's announcement about Sergio Agüero's departure by the end of the season, the player's future became linked to teams such as Barcelona, PSG, and even his boyhood club, Independiente. Nevertheless, the footballer seems to have other plans that would not see him leaving the Premier League.

According to a report by the Evening Standard, Agüero would be willing to snub offers from those clubs in favor of the only English team that has approached the player's entourage asking for his services. As disappointing as it may be for some fans, Agüero is reportedly considering to continue his playing career with Chelsea, but there are some reasons for the striker to choose that path.

The English newspaper established that Agüero wants to leave his mark in Premier League history by rising through the goalscorers' ranks. Right now, Agüero's tally of 181 goals is good enough to sit in fourth place of the all-time scoring list behind Alan Shearer (260), Wayne Rooney (208), and Andy Cole (187). While Agüero believes that catching up to Shearer may be a bit complicated, the Argentine would be willing to sign a two or three-year deal with Chelsea so he can surpass Wayne Rooney's tally. 

Sources close to Chelsea have suggested that both Roman Abramovich and coach Thomas Tuchel would green-light the signing. In fact, Tuchel referred to Agüero as a "top-class player", and adding his name to the Blues' roster would be good to help both Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in their efforts to adapt to Premier League football.

Agüero joined Manchester City in the 2011-12 season, where he scored 30 goals in all competitions and found the back of the net for the Cityzens first Premier League title and first English crown since 1968. He has played a key role in Manchester City's five Premier League titles in the past decade, and he is also the team's all-time top scorer with 181 goals. Agüero is set to leave the club by the end of the season after playing only being able to score three goals in the 2020-21 campaign after being hit by several injuries.
