Aguero Is Not For Sale!

Aguero Is Not For Sale!

Speculation surfaced last week, implying Sergio Aguero could be tempted to move to Eastlands. However Athletico Madrid`s coach, Javier Aguirre has told the media he is happy at Madrid and has a contract to fill.

Javier Aguirre is quoted in the Manchester Evening News:

'On the subject of him possibly leaving, he has a contract here, he is happy here and I'm sure that is going to want to stay.

'Sergio, I truly believe, is going to do very good things here.'

His comments where made after City found that Aguero has a clause in his contract that will allow him to leave the club for around £40 million pounds, and of course City have no problem trying to finance any deal.

This is just the start of a host of players that will be linked with the club up until the transfer window re-opens and slams shut again. Exciting times to be a city fan!

You don't really have a choice when you give someone a release clause. So yes, he is for sale.

My view is that all the talk about Aguero is newspaper hype based on no real facts. I expect that Bluesy would have much better ways to spend £40M. I would even question the assumption that City would have no problem financing any deal. Rich people like our new owner tend to get lots of specialist advice before using their precious cash. I would expect bluesy to give much more opportunity to the homegrown Sturridge and Evans before bringing in another youngster on a long contract for £40M! It actually goes against all the commitments to the Academy to do that. While bringing in a more experienced striker on a shorter term contract at much less just gives more competition for places over the next couple of seasons. Why bringing in strikers would be a top priority now I don't know. We are already the Premiership's leading scorers -- and we have yet to field what is probably our best striking formation: LW Petrov, RW SWP, Robinho and Jo twin strikers, with plenty of ammunition coming from midfielders Elano and Johnson. We need to strengthen Left back; get another goalkeeper to mentor with Joe Hart and keep him on his toes; get cover for Kompany. We could bring in top quality in those three positions, really strengthen the team, and do it for about half the price that Aguero would cost. That's good business. Our new owner would probably have no problem financing that, but £40M for a single youngster -- who may or may not be suited to the Premiership -- I honestly can't see it happening.
