Atletico cool Aguero rumours

24 June 2009 11:24
Atletico Madrid have played down growing talk of star striker Sergio Aguero being set to leave the club this summer. Manchester United, Chelsea and Internazionale have all been linked with the 21-year-old Argentina international, but Atletico president Enrique Cerezo insists that no deal is on the cards. He stated: "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." A club spokesman had earlier confirmed: "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." Aguero has scored 48 goals in three seasons at the Vicente Calderon.
