Atletico hopeful of keeping Aguero
Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo expects striker Sergio
Aguero to be at the club next term despite speculation linking him
The Blues, as well as most of Europe’s top clubs, have been
linked with Aguero over the last year or so but Atletico have
managed to keep hold of their prized asset, whose contract buy-out
clause is 60million euros.
There is sure to be more rumours about the 21-year-old this
summer, but Cerezo is optimistic the former Independiente player
will still be with the Europa League champions next term.
“He has a contract with us, we want him to stay and he is happy
here. Only if someone comes in to pay his buy-out clause would we
then have to see what he decides…I would be surprised if he
wasn’t here next season,” said Cerezo on his club’s website.
He added: “It’s not in our plans to sell any player who is
important to us.”
With regards coach Quique Sanchez Flores, whose contract runs
out this summer, Cerezo said in Marca: “The press say Quique has
renewed his contract and signed for a year more. I have no idea
about that, I’ve not spoken with him, but we hope that’s the case.
We want continuity.
“We are happy, we’ve won a title and fought for another (Copa
del Rey) in a season which didn’t start very well.
