Guardiola approves deal for... Aguero to Chelsea?

It is no secret that Chelsea are in the market for a striker, and after missing out on Lukaku, reports in Spain suggest that Guardiola has approved the operation which would see Aguero join the Blues.

Following Gabriel Jesus' phenomenal breakthrough season, Sergio Aguero was linked with an exit from the Etihad, and it looks like Guardiola has found a destination for the Argentine.

Oversupplied with attacking options, the sale of Aguero would free up space and raise funds for City's top transfer target this summer, Alexis Sanchez.

According to Spanish 'Diario AS' reporter Manu Sainz, Guardiola has already agreed to let the man who gave City their first league title in 44 years, exit the club.

'They tell me that Chelsea want Kun Aguero. Guardiola would have already given the ok to operation…', the Spanish journalist tweeted on Sunday.


Aguero has scored 122 goals in 181 Premier League fixtures since arriving at the Etihad in 2011, but the additions of Gabriel Jesus and, potentially, Alexis Sanchez could force him out of the squad. With Chelsea on the lookout for a top-quality striker, Aguero could remain in the Premier League after all.
