Atletico Madrid turn down bid for Chelsea target Aguero

Atletico Madrid have again turned down a bid for star striker Sergio Aguero but have not named the club in question.

Following their rejection of a bid from Chelsea in the summer, the Spanish outfit have again said no to a swoop for the Argentine who stated that he was keen to remain in Madrid and help the club back up the La Liga table.

Atletico's majority shareholder, Miguel Angel Gil Marin, said the club had ruled out a move for Aguero and will wait until the player wants to leave before selling him.

"We have had another opportunity (to sell him) and again we have said no," Gil Marin said.

"Aguero will leave Atletico when he wants to go, as happened with Fernando Torres."
