Man City striker Sergio Aguero offers to bankroll Independient transfer spree, gets ignored
Sergio Aguero has offered to buy and pay five new players for his former side Independiente but the offer has been ignored, according to his dad.
The Manchester City striker is said to have promised to play the part of Sheik Mansour and bankroll a spending spree for the Argentinian team. Yet Independiente never came up with a shopping list for Aguero to work from.
His father Leonel is quoted as saying: “Sergio Aguero offered to buy five players and pay their salaries.
“We asked Carlos Squeo (assistant coach to manager Miguel Angel Brindisi) for a list of players. We don’t know what players they want because no-one called back. Not Squeo, not Brindisi. No leadership.
“I feel there is a slight against Sergio.”
Rumours that Manchester United fans have been in touch to take him up on the offer have not been confirmed…
