Atletico Madrid will not consider any offer from Chelsea this week for striker Sergio Aguero.

Atletico Madrid will not consider any offer from Chelsea this week for striker Sergio Aguero.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is expected to bid £50 million in the next 24 hours for Aguero and Atletico winger Maxi Rodriguez.

But Marca says Atletico will not consider selling the Argentine just 24 hours before the first-leg of their critical Champions League qualifier against Panathinaikos. Atletico insiders say if Abramovich had come knocking this time last week, they would have considered it.
