Sergio Aguero’s father has revealed that Arsenal and Chelsea expressed an interest in signing his son until he signed for Barcelona.

The 33-year-old frontman has departed City as the club’s all-time leading scorer, with the experienced Argentine opting to run down his contract and make a move to Barcelona on a free transfer.

Opportunities were there for a prolific presence to remain in England , but they were passed up in favour of joining fellow countryman Lionel Messi at Camp Nou.

Leonel Aguero told Argentinian radio station Radio La Red: “He is happy right now after signing for Barcelona. I see him happy.

“He didn’t know what was going to happen with his future. There were several clubs interested in signing him. Arsenal were interested in him and Chelsea to the last minute. If he didn’t stay in England, it was going to be Italy or Spain.

“He’s been friends with Lionel Messi since they were 15 and they’ve always talked. It looks like Messi is going to stay at Barcelona so they’re going to play together.”
