Leeds United are reportedly eyeing a sensational move for Sergio Aguero this summer as he prepares to depart Manchester City. It comes as Marcelo Bielsa authenticates the sale of Rodrigo, who cost the Whites £27m last summer.
Leeds are prepared to make an offer to Aguero in a bid to entice him to move to Elland Road.
The Argentine is set to depart City when his contract expires at the end of the season, calling time on his 10-year Etihad career.
But the forward does not want to leave the Premier League and still believes he has something to offer a top club.
The 32-year-old has been linked with a number of sides, home and abroad, including a return to Argentina with Boca Juniors.
However, his countryman Bielsa believes he can persuade the goal machine striker to join him at Leeds.
According to 90min, the Whites are looking to sell Rodrigo after just one season following a turgid year in the Premier League.
After just 18 appearances, the Spaniard has scored just three times and Bielsa is happy to sell while his value is still reasonably high.
And as a replacement, an audacious move for Aguero has been planned – though it remains to be seen whether the forward would entertain an offer.
The former Atletico Madrid star is keen on continuing his time in the Champions League, something Leeds cannot propose.
However, he would not have to leave the north-west of England with Leeds relatively close to Manchester.
Other Premier League clubs reportedly interested are Chelsea and Arsenal, both in the market for a striker.
Aguero is on course to win a fifth league title with City as Pep Guardiola’s side sit 14 points clear with seven games to go.
Meanwhile, the Spaniard has insisted they will not be dipping into the transfer window to replace Aguero.
“There is a big chance we are not going to sign a striker this summer,” he said.
“We have enough players in the first-team right now and we have interesting players in the academy, so there is a big chance that, because of the economic situation in the world right now, we are not going to sign a striker next season.”
