Chelsea 'lead race' to sign Sergio Aguero on free transfer

Chelsea are in ‘prime position’ to sign Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero when he leaves the Etihad Stadium at the end of this season, with the soon to be 33-year-old thought to still be keen on playing in the Premier League.

It was announced earlier this week that Aguero, who joined City in 2011 and has become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer by some distance, will not be signing a new contract in Manchester and will leave as a free agent when his current deal expires in June.
