Sergio Aguero on Chelsea radar after Manchester City exit

Published

on

Sergio Aguero may be lost to Manchester City, but not the Premier League with Chelsea reportedly firming to make a stunning play for his signature.

The Argentinian striker will finally leave Manchester at the end of the season, which will likely send Europe’s heavyweights into a scramble for his services.

While Barcelona, Real Madrid and PSG are expected to come forward, Sportmail reports that Aguero’s preference is to stay in England where he has played for a decade and is on course to win a fifth Premier League crown.

Given his long-time allegiance to City, he isn’t expected to go cross-town to Manchester United, while Liverpool’s focus is to bolster its defensive socks, with Ibrahima Konate the top of its list.

That puts a move to London on the cards, and Sportmail reports that Chelsea is looking to bring in support for striker Timo Werner, who is struggling to adapt to the Premier League.

Chelsea wanted to sign Aguero back in 2011 when he was an Atletico Madrid striker, while it is one of the few clubs who could afford his salary of more than AUD$23 million.

Aguero is said to have wanted to stay at City but grew frustrated about the lack of clarity he was given over his future.

Just days after his collapse on the football pitch shocked the world, Danish football star Christian Eriksen has shared a picture from his hospital bed, thanking the world for its support.

Danish captain Simon Kjaer and referee Anthony Taylor were praised for their quick actions, while the doctors and medics worked to save Eriksen’s life.

While he was later revealed to be alive and stable in a Copenhagen hospital, it was also explained how close Eriksen came to death with the Danish team doctor Martin Boesen saying he couldn’t find a pulse.

The cause of the incident is still unknown but Eriksen posted a picture of himself, revealing he was still undergoing testing from his hospital bed.

“Hello everyone, Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family.

“I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay.

“Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark. Best, Christian.”

Unsurprisingly, the post went instantly viral as he sent it out to his 3.3m followers on Instagram with more than 500,000 likes within the first half an hour and a million likes within an hour.

The post warmed hearts with fans taking to social media.

It comes a day after his first statement to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Thank you all, I won’t give up,” Eriksen said. “I feel better now but I want to understand what happened.

“I want to say thank you for all you did for me.”

The world had sent an outpouring of tributes to the star, including fans as well as current and former teammates.

This included Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku, who plays with Eriksen at Inter Milan, and

South Korea’s Son Heung-min, his former Tottenham teammate, both paying tribute during their respective games.

Eriksen’s friend and agent Martin Schoots also told the publication that Eriksen was blown away by the support he had received.

“He joked, he was in a good mood, I found him fine,” Schoots said. “We all want to understand what happened to him, he wants to do it too: the doctors are carrying out in-depth examinations, it will take time.

“He was happy because he understood how much love is around. Messages have reached him from all over the world.”

While the incident raised plenty of questions about his playing future but right now, it appears that Eriksen is recovering nicely.

However, it comes after the disturbing reports from teammates that the side was given three options after the horrific scenes — play on, come back at 12pm the following day, or forfeit.

Denmark lost the game 1-0 to Finland after the players returned to the pitch following a two hour pause to the match.
