Argentina star Sergio Aguero has put Chelsea and Manchester United on alert by declaring he is ready to consider offers this summer.[LNB]The 21-year-old has stayed fiercly loyal to Atletico Madrid despite interest from Europe's top clubs, but a summer departure seems after the club's disappointing season in La Liga.[LNB]Chelsea came close to a £45million British record move for the striker last year - about £10m short of a bid that would meet the release clause written into his contract.[LNB] Offers: Aguero (left) is considering a move to the Premier League from Madrid[LNB]United also eyed a move after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for £80million but were put off by his high wage demands.[LNB]Barcelona and Real Madrid are both admirers, while Inter Milan have also been linked with a move, and Aguero told Italian journalists: 'I am very happy that a club like Inter are after me.[LNB]'This makes me happy. But this is no time to talk about the transfer market.[LNB]'In June I will evaluate, along with the club, the offers that will come in. The priority is that the teams reach an agreement.'[LNB]Diego Maradona, Aguero's international boss and father-in-law-to-be, is an admirer of Serie A and recently told Javier Mascherano that he would be better off in Italy than Liverpool.[LNB] Come and get me: Sergio Aguero is the son-in-law of Diego Maradona[LNB]And Aguero said: 'Serie A has a big following in Spain because it is a very difficult and competitive league. We follow Inter, Milan but also my good friend (Ezequiel) Lavezzi's Napoli.'[LNB]Atletico must decide whether to spend another summer trying to fend off offers at a time when they have huge debts.[LNB]The club some how find themselves in a Europa League semi-final against Liverpool despite winning just one of their last 12 European ties, but the achievement masks a poor showing in the league.[LNB]Atletic turned around early-season fears that they would be drawn into a relegation battle, but still sit 10th after years of fighting for the Champions League places.
