The leyendary Bluesman Robert Johnson told the World in his song "Crossroads"

I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above, have mercy now, save poor Bob if you please
Standin' at the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
Whee-hee, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, everybody pass me by

Leyend has it that Johnson met the Devil himself at the "Crossroads" & sold his soul in order to get his deepest desire, play the guitar like no one else & be the "greatest" bluesman of them all.

Spanish Football
Sergio Aguero

The SERGIO AGUERO situation could well use this soundtrack to describe how the current ATLETICO DE MADRID player is living his recent hours. The Argentine International is currently in his own personal "crossroads" & may well have to sell his soul , but not to the Devil ( his already at Atletico ) but to a Sheik.

Spanish online paper "el confidencial" publish today that apparently REAL MADRID has said NO to Sergio Aguero in his last attempt to get the Club to make an effort to buy his transfer from Atletico de Madrid. This leaves only one option: MANCHESTER CITY. The English Club is on the verge of transferring Carlos Tevez to Corinthians ( the players dislikes living in England, far from family etc) & City sees Aguero as the perfect substitute. They are the only Club to date that will offer the 45M€ contract clause release fee & have offered the player a staggering 9M€ per season salary. Local Spanish Football observers have in the last days changed their minds about this being a tactical 
manoeuvre from Aguero, to the Man City option is about to become a reality. How did Aguero get here? 

The Argentine played his cards badly, he showed all his aces without knowing what the other players had up their sleeves. The player has also been handled by some very bad representatives that played their own game with "over-confidence" & ended up flying around Europe selling their player to everyone that would listen. However, Sergio Aguero may have actually been "betrayed" by Real Madrid, which wished to buy him last January in the "Winter Market", promised him their devoted forever "love" thereafter , but in the end wished not to enter into a "Club-War" with its rival & city neighbour. Real Madrid has changed focus, strategy & "love" towards Brazilian Neymar for the same amount of money: 45M€.

Sergio Aguero has publicly said that he wishes to leave Atletico de Madrid & will not return to Atletico de Madrid, while waiting for the "promised" Real Madrid offer that did not arrive. If it is true what has been reported, that Aguero has made a last ditch attempt to sell himself to Real Madrid & the latter has told him NO way José, then the Argentine is truely lost in his own self made hole & personal crossroad:

1. he returns to Atletico de Madrid on Sunday ( as called up by the Club) & publicly asking for forgiveness & be humiliated, with fans spewing abuse for months

2. takes the Manchester City offer,  against his desires to stay in Madrid & play in Real Madrid
3. that Football shows us again how little we all know & Real Madrid comes back in the picture & makes the play in the last minute.

Today , at this moment , point 2 is the real option. Manchester City seems to have all the cards,  & as Robert Johnson sang,..."I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees. Asked the Lord above, have mercy now, save poor Bob if you please" .

We will know the outcome soon to this Football story. If your a Manchester City fan, your Club is in the box seat,  & nearly everyone is calling it a "sure thing". If your a Real Madrid fan, it all looks dim, very dim & almost discarded if today's news is correct. Lastly, if your an Atletico fan, anything is possible, the Club is the "Devils Club" ( in a figurative & metaphorical sense).

Stay tuned!
