Chelsea were linked with Sergio Aguero in the past, before his move to Manchester City in 2011.

It’s a shocker that the Blues didn’t go for the Argentine over a decade ago, and the 33-year-old went on to become one of the best players in the history of the Premier League.

Aguero is the top-scoring foreign player in the Premier League and is the fourth highest scorer in the Premier League history, with 184 goals.

Following his retirement from the game after a heart condition, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has revealed how he told Chelsea to sign Aguero at the time.

He told Sky Sports: “I hope that he gets the recognition he deserves. I absolutely love him, years and years ago when he was at Atletico Madrid, I told Chelsea they should buy him.

“He makes me think of Romario, the way that he used to play back in the day. It’s a real pity he has to stop playing now, he’s certainly one of the best players in Premier League history – I think there are better, but he’s definitely up there.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
