Chelsea stun rivals with mega £50M bid for Atletico Madrid star Aguero

Chelsea have launched a mega £50 million offer for Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero. The Daily Star Sunday says Chelsea last night launched a stunning £50miIlion bid to sign Aguero - after it was revealed the player was close to joining Juventus.

The Blues' dramatic move for Aguero, 23, comes as Atletico coach Gregorio Manzano warned ­mega-bucks Manchester City - who are also ­interested in the Argentina striker - to make an offer or face the prospect of having to meet his £45m release clause.

Chelsea's bid is intended to blow everyone out of the water. If accepted it would mean that chairman Roman Abramovich has spent £100m on strikers this year, following on from his £50m capture of Fernando Torres, 27, from Liverpool.

And with David Luiz, 24, also having joined the ranks for £20m in January, the Russian ­billionaire has not been shy with his cash as he targets winning the Champions League.
