• Atletico hopeful over Aguero

Aguero, 23, is one of the most sought-after young strikers around with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester City tracking him. And the Argentine is keen to further his career away from Atletico, having made his desire to leave clear last month.

Now, speaking from his homeland, Aguero underlined his desire to find a new club once more.

"I will not return to Atletico, it is clear," he told ESPN. "I talked to the club, gave a statement, now my representatives are negotiating my departure from the club.

"I don't know when the agreement will be, but I will know when the Copa America is finished."
