The Football Transfer Tavern has been rather quiet today as transfer speculation dries up heading into the final few months of the season.
We are expecting the summer to be a busy one in the tavern with several high-profile players linked with moves, but one we can forget, about according to his current manager, is Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
The Argentinean has been rumoured to be interested in both Barcelona and Real Madrid but Manuel Pellegrini has told the Manchester Evening News that Aguero won’t be leaving the Etihad Stadium in the summer.
The quotes come after City failed to score in their last two matches, putting the mini-drought now down to the absence of the 25-year-old with a hamstring injury.
The former Atletico Madrid man has been in fine form for the Citizens this term with 26 goals in all competitions and both Madrid and Barca are thought to have a long-standing interest in the striker.
Spanish reports indicated that Madrid president Florentino Perez asked City chief executive Ferran Soriano about Aguero’s availability and was given a firm refusal.
“To score goals is always the most difficult thing in football,” said Pellegrini. “Maybe, because this team has been scoring goals so easily this season, people have been talking about the amount of goals they are going to score again.
“But every match is different.
“I think that this is absolutely related to the injury of Aguero.”
Can City keep hold of Sergio for the foreseeable future? Let us know your thoughts below.
