Chelsea & Sergio Aguero
A crazy rumour has sprouted out from Spain on Sunday claiming that Chelsea could be about to sign Man City striker Sergio Aguero.
The source of the report is Manu Sainz, who works for AS.
He’s taken to social media on Sunday to post his update that Chelsea are now targeting Man City’s Argentine star, while Pep Guardiola has personally given the “ok” for the Sky Blues to get the deal done.
For the record, Kun is under contract with Man City until 2019.
Me cuentan que el Chelsea quiere al Kun Agüero. Guardiola ya habría dado el ok a la operación…

Does it make sense?
It’s been a rough summer for Chelsea in the search for a new striker.
Diego Costa has been told to find a new club, Dom Solanke has joined Liverpool, Tammy Abraham has joined Swansea, leaving Michy Batshuayi, who struggled to get minutes last season.
Meanwhile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has dropped a hint he’s off to AC Milan, and he could be joined at the Sani Siro by Torino’s Andrea Belotti.
With options dwindling, Aguero could be an incredible alternative for Conte: Kun is a proven Premier League goalscorer.
From Man City’s point of view, it’s obvious that Pep Guardiola has too many cooks in his midfield and attack.
Aguero already has Gabriel Jesus breathing down his neck, while there’s Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane, Bernando Silva, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Yaya Toure, Fernando and Fernandinho all fighting for starting spots.
And that field will only get more cluttered if Alexis Sanchez joins from Arsenal.
‘Computer says no’
But Aguero to Chelsea. Really?
Aguero has been with the Sky Blues for six years, during which time he’s won the Premier League title twice, plus two League Cup trophies.
He’s also won the EPL Golden Boot award two seasons in a row, plus he’s scored over 120 goals for the Cityzens.
With all that said, many fans can’t believe Aguero to Chelsea is happening.
