A decade ago, Chelsea were in the rumours for a move for Sergio Aguero, but a deal never worked, with Manchester City winning the race for the Argentina striker.

Ten years after, Chelsea have again been linked with the Argentine, just that this time around, he’s 32 years old and is now easily susceptible to injury.

Aguero’s contract with Manchester City winds up this summer, and he’s yet to agree an extension. Chelsea and Barcelona are the two clubs to have been linked with the 32-year-old, and one would wonder if Chelsea would be making a wise decision by signing him.

The Blues have been linked with Erling Haaland, who is 12 years younger than Aguero, but signing him would take a massive investment, as all of Europe’s giant clubs are keen on him.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United player Paul Ince, has urged Olé Gunnar Solskjaer to take a chance and try to sign the Man City striker.

“It’s not as if Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are the only two answers for Man United though,” Ince told Ladbrokes.

“Sergio Aguero might be leaving Man City, why shouldn’t United make a move for him?

“You could see it now; if he wanted to stay in the Premier League and he’s living in Manchester, then I don’t think it would be a bad thing at all if they went and got Aguero.

“It can happen, who knows? You’ve got to ask the question if you’re 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’d 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’s what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should do with Aguero this summer.”
