'Sergio Aguero should join Chelsea' after he leaves Manchester City this summer

Ian Wright believes Sergio Aguero should join Chelsea after he leaves Manchester City at the end of the season.

City announced that the Argentine striker would be departing the Etihad Stadium once his contract expires this summer, having spent over a decade at the club.

With his future currently up in the air, Wright says Aguero would benefit from having ‘Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic around him’ at Chelsea.

Aguero has been linked with several European giants, with many convinced he will reunite with Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

However, speaking on Ringer FC’s Wrighty’s House podcast, the former Arsenal legend said Aguero would benefit from a move to Stamford Bridge.

He believes the Premier League’s fourth-highest scorer of all time could add more goals to his tally with the speed of the Chelsea midfield.

‘Can I throw something out there? He should go to Chelsea,’ Wright said on the podcast.

‘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”.’

Wright also shared his opinion on Aguero's departure, claiming it was Pep Guardiola's decision.

He said: ‘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.’
