Sergio Aguero has today revealed that he will ignore the advice of his father-in-law Diego Maradona, and remain at Manchester City, according to today’s Daily Mail report.
There had been speculation that Real Madrid were interested in luring Aguero to the Bernabeu, and Maradona had reportedly advised the Argentine that this was the right move. However, Aguero has today confirmed his allegiance to City, claiming that he hopes to win many more trophies in his time there. The news will come as great relief to the blue half of Manchester, as the Argentine striker has enjoyed a fantastic first season, and is undoubtedly crucial in any future success his side will have.
The Sun today reports Jose Mourinho is looking into the possibility of bringing Branislav Ivanovic to the Bernabeu. The Special One is keen on strengthening his defence and has directed his attention towards the powerhouse Chelsea defender. Ivanovic has had another excellent season at the Blues, picking up FA Cup and Champions League winners medals, as well as enjoying personal recognition by being one of three players nominated for the Chelsea Player of the Year Award, losing out to Juan Mata.
The 28 year old Serbian spoke freely about Madrid’s interest, admitting: “I know there is an interest from Madrid, who are following me. But it’s not the time to talk about it now”. But Ivanovic, whose contract at Chelsea runs until 2016, was quick to stress his content at his current club, stating: “I’m very happy with Chelsea. I have just won the Champions League, a change is complicated. I am very happy in London.”
