Atletico rule out Aguero sale

24 June 2009 10:29
Atletico Madrid insist sought-after star Sergio Aguero is not for sale this summer. Manchester United are the latest club to be linked with the Argentine ace as they look to bring in a big name to help fill the void created by Cristiano Ronaldo's impending move to Real Madrid. Chelsea and Inter Milan have also been mooted as possible suitors for the 21-year-old who is regarded as one of the best young forwards in world football. Atletico are determined to keep hold of the Argentina international and president Enrique Cerezo is confident Aguero will remain at Vicente Calderon next season. "I know that the big clubs of Europe are interested in our player, but I have spoken with the people next to Kun and I am convinced that next season he will continue in the squad," said Cerezo. An Atletico spokesman insists the club have not received any offers for the South American. "We have not received formally any offers and the club's board of directors have had a meeting and the decision is clear - Kun Aguero is not for sale and only if a club pay his release clause could an exit be possible," said the spokesman.
