Chelsea are reported to be considering making a mega-money move for Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero.
Chelsea had enquired about Aguero during previous transfer windows, but the massive €60 million buyout clause in his contract put the London club off making an offer.
However Aguero, who is married to the daughter of Diego Maradona, has recently signed a new contract with a reduced clause thought to be €45 million. Aguero’s new price tag is thought to have reignited Chelsea’s interest in the Argentinean striker who has been at Atletico Madrid since 2006.
Chelsea have suffered an almighty drop in form since November and are a shadow of the side that brushed aside all-comers in the early stages of the season. Manager Carlo Ancelotti knows that something drastic needs to happen in order to get Chelsea’s title push back on track and a new striker to partner the misfiring Didier Drogba may put the spark back into Chelsea’s season.
