Sky Sports reported that Chelsea are also amongst the top clubs who are interested in signing the former Atletico Madrid star.

Barcelona are hopeful of persuading captain Lionel Messi, an international team-mate of Aguero, to remain at the club beyond this summer.

Meanwhile, popular sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano, revealed that while Aguero “would be prepared to reduce his salary while playing at Barcelona, and of course, with Leo Messi, there’s still no agreement completed or signed.”
