ATLETICO DE MADRID | 11M€ PROMISE TO SERGIO AGUERO

Interesting article from Spanish Sports paper "Marca" & at the sometime conflicting & curious in its context. The piece highlights that ATLETICO DE MADRID has come to an agreement to increase the salary of its star Argentine forward SERGIO "KUN" AGUERO next season to 11M€ (gross) , making Aguero one of the highest paid players in the World.

Sergio Aguero for Atletico de Madrid

Firstly, if it was Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Chelsea FC, Man Utd or AC Milan, you would think congratulations. However, it is Atletico de Madrid, a Club with a "debt" & Club that recently lowered from 65M€ to 45M€ the players contract release clause to allow the player to leave if an offer did arise. There´s more "incoherency". Rumours are strong that Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Chelsea FC , Juventus...have the player in mind for next season. So what's the pay rise about? Smoke signals to the fan-base of a long-term commitment?

If Atletico de Madrid does not finish in Euro positions this season - & in the case of Aguero in Champions positions - on the Spanish League ladder, the player has more chances of leaving than staying next season. A player of Aguero´s calibre & class cannot afford to stay too long away from Champions League - the Worlds maximum Football stage - for more seasons. Atletico de Madrid unfortunately cannot guarantee Aguero that "ticket", & if they could, Atletico cannot guarantee the ride would be long.

Stay tuned!
