According to Daily Mail via Metro.co.uk, Chelsea are considering a move for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero at the end of the season.

The Argentine striker is expected to leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season with Manchester City yet to reach an agreement over a contract extension.

Chelsea have been ‘long-term admirers’ of Aguero and are now weighing up a move to sign the striker on a free transfer this summer.

Aguero has started just four games for Manchester City this season due to fitness issues and it is believed Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is happy to let the 32 year old Argentine leave on a free transfer.

Chelsea aren’t the only club interested in signing Aguero on a free transfer. Spanish club Barcelona are also interested in a free transfer for the Argentine striker.

Meanwhile, Guardiola has given an update on Aguero’s future at Manchester City.

Guardiola said this month: “As a human and as a person, even as a player of course but we have to see what happens at the end of the season.

“We cannot forget how long he was out. He has started getting better.

“I know he needs minutes to get to his best condition but we are not maybe in the moment to give him minutes for minutes because it is an important part of the season.

“We have to be calm, the club will speak to his agent to know the situation and we are going to talk at the end of the season. It’s the same with Fernandinho.”
