Sergio Aguero is reportedly ‘willing to forego Champions League football’ in order to stay in the Premier League amid links with both Chelsea and Tottenham.
Aguero last week announced he will be leaving Manchester City at the end of the current season, the club’s all-time record goalscorer calling time on his career with the club after a decade of success at the Etihad.
The Argentina international has won four league titles and scored a record 257 goals in all competitions, becoming the highest-scoring overseas player in Premier League history and fourth-highest overall.
The 32-year-old had been linked with moves to the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer this summer, though recent reports have suggested he is keen to extend his stay in English football.
According to the Telegraph, Aguero will even consider a side not in the Champions League next season with both Chelsea and Tottenham realistic options even if they miss out on a top-four finish this season.
Aguero is understood to be ‘open’ to proving he can still thrive in the Premier League and his availability on a free transfer is likely to attract suitors given his goalscoring exploits in England’s top tier.
The forward is permitted to speak with foreign clubs regarding a pre-contract agreement, with interest in his services set to by high from some of Europe’s elite.
