Argentine commits future to La Liga strugglers.
Sergio Aguero has once again distanced himself from a January transfer away from Atletico Madrid.
The Argentina international is widely regarded as one of Europe’s hottest properties, with his reputation having rocketed since moving to Spain in 2006.
He has become an integral part of Atletico’s attacking arsenal, alongside Diego Forlan,while he is also a regular at international level under his father-in-law Diego Maradona.
Still only 21-years-old, Aguero is expected to go on to bigger and better things in the future.
Inevitably, his rapid progress has seen him regularly linked with a move away from Vicente Calderon.
Premier League giants Chelsea have been mentioned as a possible destination on numerous occasions, with the Blues reported to be weighing up a big-money approach for the South American starlet.
However, Aguero insists he has no desire to leave his current home and insists that, until told otherwise, he will continue to give his all for Atletico.
“What is clear is that I am happy here and my future lies with Atletico,” he said.
“It’s always good when a team is interested in you but the truth is I know nothing and if anything happens I’ll refer it to the club for it to decide what to do.
“Right now I’m not thinking of anything – my future is with Atletico.”
Aguero still has two years left to run on his current contract in the Spanish capital and is said to have a 60million euros (£54m) buy-out clause included in that deal. (Sky Sports)
Speculation about a potential Chelsea move for talented Argentine youngster Aguero has been intense and given just how shocking Atletico Madrid have performed this term a move for Sergio seemed on the cards but these comments seem to quash such speculation and it is good to see a player commit himself so vehemently to his club but no doubt this will not be the end of the rumours.
Atletico are sitting near the relegation zone and just scrapped a place in the Europa League after a particularly disastrous Champions League campaign, however throughout the season thus far Aguero has continued to do a great job up front and has managed 11 goals this term already despite the club’s horrendous start to the season/
Many believe that Carlo Ancelotti will look to make a number of signings this January just in case the FIFA transfer ban that is currently suspended becomes a reality and therefore leaves them unable to sign players after this transfer window slams shut.
