Chelsea have been told they will have to pay a huge fee if they want Atletico Madrid forward Sergio Aguero. [LNB] Atletico delegate general Miguel Angel Gil Marin claims Chelsea made a summer offer of around £41million for the Argentina international, who played in the defeat to Carlo Ancelotti's men last week at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League. [LNB] Gil Marin told Marca: "If they want to make a better offer, Atletico will assess it." [LNB] Meanwhile, midfielder Joe Cole is happy with how contract talks are developing about staying at Chelsea beyond the end of the season when his current deal runs out. [LNB] Cole, who stepped up his rehabilitation from his knee injury with an appearance against Blackburn on Saturday, told the Evening Standard: "We're talking at the moment. I love it here. The club want me to stay, so there should be no problems and I feel like this is my home. [LNB] "There is so much to look forward to and I am so excited about just playing football for Chelsea and England. [LNB] "There are a lot of ups and downs in football and I've had eight-nine months of sitting on my backside watching so the game against Blackburn was like a breath of fresh air for me."
