Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero's proposed new contract will include a €90 million release clause to ward off interest from the English Premier League, according to reports.
The 22-year-old is on the verge of putting pen to paper on a new three-year deal to remain at the Vicente Calderon, despite interest from both Chelsea and Manchester United.
AS comments that Aguero’s current contract includes a release clause in the region of ₤50m, which had been considered, particularly by Roman Abramovich and Chelsea.
However, the increased release clause is intended to warn off any potential suitors and allow the Argentine to enjoy his football at the capital club without the spectre of transfer speculation.
Aguero recently spoke of his delight that Los Colchoneros have managed to make major improvements in the summer, and restated his intention to remain at the club.
He said: “I have told the club that I want to stay here, so they will sort out with my agent the renewal of my contract – I don’t get involved with that.
“But as I have always said, I am happy here and when the club needs to sell me for the money, they will do. But right now they don’t want to and I’m here.”
Aguero is expected to take his place in Atletico’s starting line-up versus Inter in this Friday’s European Super Cup clash.
