Ian Wright has urged Sergio Aguero to pick Chelsea as his next club after he leaves Manchester City at the end of the season.

City announced at the end of March that the Argentine striker will depart from the Etihad when his contract expires this summer, bringing an end to his glittering 10-year spell at the club.

Aguero, who is the Premier League’s fourth-highest scorer of all time on 182 goals, has been linked with Europe’s elite clubs such as Barcelona, where he would link up with compatriot Lionel Messi.

Speaking on Ringer FC’s Wrighty’s House podcast, Arsenal legend Wright stated his belief that it was Pep Guardiola’s decision for Aguero to leave City, and urged the 32-year-old to continue in England’s top flight with Chelsea.

‘I think that decision has come from Pep Guardiola, Pep Guardiola doesn’t want him there anymore,’ Wright said.

‘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 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”.’
