Ian Wright offers Aguero transfer advice that will leave Pep Guardiola “vexed”

Former Arsenal and England star Ian Wright has suggested departing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero should move to Chelsea next season.

Aguero is bring his 10-year stint at the Premier League club to an end this season, news that was confirmed by the club at the end of March.

So far the Argentinean has been linked to clubs such as Barcelona which would see him play with his national teammate Lionel Messi.

Wright has suggested Aguero has left because of Guardiola and that the striker should remain in the Premier League by signing for Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.

He said on Wrighty’s house podcast : “I think that decision has come from Pep Guardiola, Pep Guardiola doesn’t want him there anymore.

“I heard his [Guardiola’s] interview [after the Crystal Palace win], “What a goal, what an action, what a player, what a man, I’m incredibly delighted he’s back”, none of that makes sense to me.

“The fact we now know he’s leaving, it doesn’t make sense.

“He was so sharp against Crystal Palace. How a player of that calibre, as good as he is, is not starting against PSG [in the Champions League semi-final first leg] when you saw the chances they created where they didn’t have a No.9, you saw the way he took his chance against Palace, you’re thinking, you need a half-chance taker.

“We’re talking about going into the next phase for Pep to go into that place where he should be [winning the Champions League], where he’s gone with Barcelona but he needs to do it with another team.

“You’re going into that situation without arguably one of the greatest strikers. It doesn’t make sense that he’s leaving. Can I throw something out there? He should go to Chelsea.”

Wright then added he has come up with the idea that Aguero must be “vexed” with Guardiola.

He added: “When you look at Edinson Cavani [at Manchester United ] and the pace of the guys behind him, you look at Luis Suarez at Atleti, the pace and everything they’ve got around him

“Can you imagine Aguero up top for Chelsea with Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, all those guys, [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, [Christian] Pulisic around him, that’s 25 goals.

“Me, if I’m Chelsea and I can get him for free, I’m going in. I’ve fabricated this all in my head that he’s vexed with Pep [Guardiola] and it’s the kind of thing where he’ll say, ‘Yes, I’m going to go to Chelsea.'”

The two Premier League clubs will now face off in the Champions League final – which is set to be Aguero’s last game in a City shirt.
