Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero has been linked with a big money move to United. You can expect a bid for the Argentine international in the next week. United could have to pay upwards of £40 million to capture the starlet. He is just the sort of superstar signing that we need this summer.
Aguero had a good last season helping Atletico Madrid to fourth place in La Liga and a Champions League spot. He also scored the winner in Atletico’s enthralling 4-3 victory over Barcelona at the Vicente Calderon.
The Argentinian has also attracted interest from Chelsea and Barcelona in the past few seasons. Hes been highly rated ever since he made his Independiente debut at just 15 years 35 days in 2003. Like so many young Argentines hes been rated as the ‘next Maradona‘ and is the Argentina managers son-in-law having married Maradona’s daughter. So he has a good footballing mentor, if not a good lifestyle mentor.
The young star has an interesting nickname which is ‘Kun’. A name he earned from his grandparents growing up in Argentina because he looked like a character called ‘Kun Kun’ from a Japanese cartoon series. He still gets called ‘Kun’ by teammates and management alike.
