Man Utd, Chelsea In Race To Sign Aguero

English giants Manchester United and Chelsea have made offers for outgoing Manchester City star Sergio Aguero.

Aguero will end his stay at Etihad Stadium when his contract expires this season.

His next destination is unclear at present but according to French outlet Foot Mercato he could stay in England with United and Chelsea already making an offer for his services.

The publication also states PSG and Inter Milan are keen to land Aguero on a free, with Mauricio Pochettino particularly keen on signing his fellow countryman.

Aguero, who has notched 257 goals in 384 games with the Citizens, has not made a decision on where he will be playing next term.

But with Edinson Cavani departing Old Trafford, United could finally secure revenge for City poaching Carlos Tevez from them on a free all those years ago.

As for Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel’s side have been linked with another striker in recent weeks, despite Timo Werner arriving last summer.

The idea of Aguero joining United was actually floated by former Red Devils midfielder Paul Ince earlier this month.

“Sergio Aguero might be leaving Man City – why should not United make a move for him?” he told Ladbrokes.

“You could see it now – if he wanted to stay in the Premier League and he is living in Manchester, then I do not think it would be a bad thing at all if they went and got Aguero.

“It can happen, who knows? You have got to ask the question if you are United because you never know.

“It happened with us back in 1992 when Howard Wilkinson was asking Sir Alex Ferguson about Denis Irwin. Fergie said there would be no chance of that happening and suggested Leeds sold Cantona to them, and within a couple of days that deal was done.

“It was just Fergie throwing a name out there and taking a chance, trying his luck. Maybe that is what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should do with Aguero this summer.”
