Marina Granovskaia set new Chelsea transfer mission after Barcelona prepare to seal deal

Chelsea was one of several teams linked with a summer move for Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero, but they could be about to lose out.

Chelsea is unlikely to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero this summer.

The Blues were strongly linked with a move for the Argentine, who will leave Manchester City after a decade when his deal expires this summer.


            Chelsea is expected to spend heavily on a striker this summer, but they could also need another deputy, as Olivier Giroud is expected to leave and Tammy Abraham's future is uncertain.

            Even with his injury problems this season, Aguero might have been a very good choice as a free agent this summer, but it seems his heart has taken him elsewhere.

            According to Fabrizio Romano, a transfer specialist, Aguero is already planning to accept a contract offer from Barcelona for next season.

            In addition, Romano says Aguero was so determined to join Barcelona that he took a massive pay cut, lowering his annual salary to about £8.6 million.

            According to reports, three clubs approached the City striker in an attempt to entice him to their respective clubs, but Aguero's 'priority' was to 'join Barca.'

            Negotiations over his contract are said to be underway, although it appears that a settlement will be reached sooner rather than later, and it is supposed to last until 2023.

            Barcelona has been made to regret allowing veteran Luis Suarez to leave ahead of this season, with the former Liverpool star leading Atletico Madrid to within a win of the title heading into the final day.

            Aguero may fill the vacuum, and crucially for free, considering Barcelona's financial difficulties, but that does not help Chelsea, who could be searching for more than one frontman this summer.
