Sergio Aguero in 'best moment of career' - Manchester City teammates Richard Jolly December 5, 2014 Manchester City's Pablo Zabaleta hailed teammate Sergio Aguero as the top striker in world football, while Stevan Jovetic described The Argentine as the third-best player on the planet after he kept up his superb scoring form. Aguero scored twice in a 4-1 win over Sunderland on Wednesday to take his tally to 19 goals in 20 games this season, including five in his last three matches. Zabaleta appeared alongside Aguero in the Argentina under-20 team that won the U-20 World Cup in 2005 and also picked up a gold medal at the Olympics together in 2008. They have been City colleagues for three and a half years and the right-back said he has never seen the former Atletico Madrid forward play better.

The star trio will hope to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in this year's team, having been shortlisted for a place in the illustrious side The shortlist for the forwards in Fifa's FIFPro World XI has been announced, with Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney and Diego Costa all nominated from the Premier League. The Manchester City striker leads the way, having helped his side win the Premier League in 2013-14, though injury curtailed his World Cup. Aguero has also hit the ground running this term, scoring 17 goals in 19 appearances. Rooney, meanwhile, was a rare bright spot under David Moyes, and has impressed under Louis Van Gaal, having scored his first ever World Cup goal for England at the World Cup. Costa will also fancy his chances of inclusion, with his goals last season propelling Atletico Madrid to the Champions League final, and his start under Jose Mourinho cementing his position as one of the finest strikers in world football. The Brazil-born Spain international has hit ...
Two of world football's finest strikers go head-to-head at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday as Manuel Pellegrini's champions welcome Jose Mourinho's chief contenders English football loses its superstars. Or so it seems, anyway, amid the talent drain to Spain. Yet on Sunday, two goal machines meet, beginning a duel for Premier League glory, the Golden Boot and perhaps even the unofficial title of the world's best centre forward. Luis Suarez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robert Lewandowski and the Manchester United pair of Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao are contenders but two of the prime candidates are Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero. The Chelsea target man has made statistically the best start to a Premier League career, with seven goals in four games. The Manchester City poacher has the lowest minutes-per-goal ratio of anyone in the division's history who has struck 30 times or more: he goes just 114 minutes between strikes on average.  The predators leading the line at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday are striker ...
Football - Bundesliga Bayern confirm Mandzukic agreement with Atletico Bayern Munich have announced that striker Mario Mandzukic will be joining Atletico Madrid. Mandzukic, 28, scored two goals at the World Cup finals for Croatia but just prior to the tournament confirmed he would be leaving Bayern due to coach Pep Guardiola's tactics. Now Bayern, who signed the striker from Wolfsburg in 2012, have agreed to sell him to reigning Liga champions Atleti. "Still nothing has been signed, but there is a verbal agreement between both Bayern and Atletico Madrid as well as between Mario and Atletico," said sporting director Matthias Sammer on Wednesday. Mandzukic will be Diego Costa's replacement at Atleti following the news that the Spain striker is joining Chelsea. The Croatian attempts to live up to an impressive recent succession of strikers at Vicente Calderon, including Falcao, Sergio Aguero and Fernando Torres.
Atletico Madrid are ready to launch a €31 million [£25m] bid for wantaway Manchester City forward Alvaro Negredo, Goal understands. The Spanish champions, who have already lost David Villa to MLS franchise New York City, have identified Negredo as a potential replacement for Chelsea-bound Diego Costa. City paid Sevilla €20m [£16m] last summer to acquire the striker’s services, as well as an extra €5m [£4m] in add-ons, and are hopeful of making a small profit on a player who earns €95,000 [£75,000] per week at Etihad Stadium Negredo hit the ground running last season and formed a fearsome partnership with Sergio Aguero, scoring 23 goals by the end of January before a shoulder injury prevented him from making a telling impact during the run-in. Indeed, the 28-year-old failed to score in his final 16 appearances of the season and was omitted from Vicente Del Bosque’s 23-man World Cup squad as a result. Negredo has struggled to acclimatise in Manchester despite the presence of Spain internatio ...

I just wonder, if these strikers had never left Atletico Madrid, they would have won the La Liga 2-3 times by this year. Fernando Torres, Sergio Aguero, Radamel Falcao and now Diego Costa. If they all have played together at Atletico, I think they could have made the title a three horse race a long time back.

My prediections: Barcelona v Atletico Madrid ~ This one will be tight, but I think experience will see Barqa through to the final four. Neymar and Messi will score enough goals to cover for Barqa's defensive deficiencies, and Puyol will be leaving it all out on the field in his final campaign. Barqa will win one for the Gipper and go through. Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund ~ Real Madrid will have more problems than people expect. Don't forget; Borussia Dortmund were the Bundesliga champions two seasons ago. They may appear to have faltered since, but a lot of that is due to Bayern Munich playing out of thier minds and destroying the Bundesliga each of the past two seasons. They won't be scared by Real's attack, and may actually grab a home victory. But it won't be enough; I see Real going through, especially after last year's disappointment. Bale will be the difference. Paris St Germain v Chelsea ~ Easily the premier matchup of this stage in the competition. Less than two years removed from their surpris ...
The Brazilian feels the striker is on a par with the Manchester City man after he guided Atleti to victory over Espanyol at the weekend Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis has compared Diego Costa to former Atleti star Sergio Aguero. Filipe Luis played alongside the Argentine in 2010-11 before the latter left for Manchester City and the left-back feels Costa believes the match-winning qualities of the pair are striking similar. "Each time we are struggling a bit, Diego Costa steps up and makes the difference," the Brazilian defender told AS. "He really reminds me of Kun Aguero when he was at his best for Atleti. Sometimes things got complicated and then Kun created something from out of nowhere. "Diego has that quality as well. When the going gets tough, he's able to do something special as well. "We can only hope that he keeps up this level. It's great to have him in our team. He has what it takes to become a true great." The 25-year-old Costa has been in fine form for Atletico in 2013-14, scoring 22 go ...
Diego Costa goal record From Francisco Campos in the pre-World War II era to Escudero after the war, Luis Aragones, Hugo Sanchez, Julio Salinas, Radomir Antic, Christain Vieri, Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink and in recent times home boy Fernando Torres (El Nino), Sergio Aguero (El Kun), Diego Forlan, Radamel Falcao (El Tigre), now Diego Costa (El Pantera) and not forgetting David Villa (El Gauje). The rich list of prolific strikers who have graced the Vincente Calderon is an enviable part of Atlético's history. Few clubs can boast of such array of attacking talents in their history. Even more difficult for some clubs is the task of replacing a world class striker which for Atlético is a non-issue. The club has show n its knack for getting it right in that aspect replacing one world class striker with another one of same quality or even better. Last week, Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Costa got back to his goal-scoring ways and scored three goals, two against AC Milan and one against Espanyol, to surpass the . ...
A top ten of the wealthiest footballers plying their trade in the English top tier. 10. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) £24m Argentine cost Man City £38m back in July 2011 and the former Atletico Madrid man will have been banking a massive salary ever since and no doubt supplementing those earnings with a hugely profitable goal-scoring bonus. 26 year old has a lucrative long running deal with sports brand Puma which will be drawing a healthy sum. 9. Yaya Toure (Manchester City) £25m Ivorian has been on a hefty £250k a week deal with Man City for the past four seasons but rumours that he earned another million for every successful pass completed against West Ham during the club's 6-0 thrashing of the Hammers are thankfully for the Etihad Stadium side, baseless. Toure also enjoys a big money brand deal with Puma. 8.

Manchester United have added another striker to a growing list of potential summer transfer targets, reports the Daily Mail. David Moyes is looking to overhaul his Manchester United squad with as much £200m being set aside for a number of high profile transfers. The Manchester United manager will be looking to strengthen every area of the pitch with a new striker heavy on the agenda. A shortlist of targets has been drawn up by Moyes, thought to contain the likes of PSG's Edinson Cavani, Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa, Mario Mandzukic at Bayern Munich and now starlet Luciano Vietto. The Argentine striker has earned rave reviews for his performances for Argentinian outfit Racing Club and has quickly been labelled as the 'next Sergio Aguero'. At just 20-years-old, Vietto will represent a signing for the future for Moyes, with the striker having significantly less experience than the three aforementioned players. However, with Robin Van Persie still playing a prominent role in the team, Moyes may see the youn ...

Fact file on Manchester City and Barcelona ahead of their Champions League last 16, first leg tie on Tuesday. Form: Manchester City's awesome form over the winter, which saw them score 69 goals during a run of 20 matches unbeaten, made them favourites in the eyes of many ahead of their first two-legged European Cup tie since losing to Fenerbahce in 1968. A 1-0 loss to Chelsea at the start of this month knocked them out of their tride, but they bounced back by beating the same team 2-0 in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday. Barcelona have bounced back from a shock home defeat to Valencia at the start of the month by winning their last two Liga games, scoring 10 goals, to go back to the top of the table. They also won through to the Copa del Rey final last week and have Neymar available again after injury.

Messi Wants Barcelona to Sign Aguero, Express Says: Roundup By Christopher Elser - Nov 15, 2013 4:50 AM GMT-0600 The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable Internet links. Aguero Interest Barcelona’s Lionel Messi told his club that it should sign Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, the Daily Express said. While Barcelona’s interest in signing Messi’s fellow Argentine dimmed when it brought in Neymar from Brazil before this season, Messi’s intervention may renew interest in the former Atletico Madrid striker, the newspaper said. City doesn’t want to sell Aguero, and Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino may be more interested in shoring up his defensive options, the newspaper said. Dzeko Departure?

Stamford Bridge side want Etihad Stadium ace. Chelsea are reportedly ready to challenge Bayern Munich in the pursuit of Man City striker Sergio Aguero according to TuttoMercato. The West London side are being linked with a stunning 50m (£42m) bid for the in-form Argentine as Jose Mourinho looks to address his stuttering Stamford Bridge strike-force. Mourinho's current quartet of strikers, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Andre Schurrle have scored just three Premier League goals between them this year, indeed loaned out Belgian Romelu Lukaku has outscored them by managing five in five appearances for Everton. Pep Guardiola is apparently keen on bringing 25 year old Aguero to the Allianz Arena but Mourinho may have other ideas though one wonders if Man City would consider any offers for such a pivotal player, especially one who has only recently been tied down to a long term contract. The former Atletico Madrid man has been a massive success since making his £38m move to the Etihad Stadium bac ...

There are some players who take their time to bed into a new club and get familiar with the strange surroundings they find themselves faced with. Then there is another type of player – one who is able to carry over good form wherever he goes, hitting the ground running and instantly endearing himself to his new club’s fans. Didier Drogba did just that last night for Galatasaray, scoring with a brilliant header and setting up another in his first game for the Turkish club. Just a few weeks ago, Mario Balotelli scored twice on his debut for AC Milan, including a last-minute winning penalty. So with that in mind, take a look at the best ever debut performances. Sergio Aguero, Manchester City v Swansea Most Manchester City fans believe that the £38 million the Citizens spent on Sergio Aguero was more than worth it; his one Premier League-winning goal against QPR last season means he has more than paid off his sizeable fee already.

Why spain is the powerhouse of soccer? . . . . Two cities, three clubs. The world’s best XI of 2012 was comprised entirely of players from Barcelona (5), Real Madrid (5) and Falcao from Atletico Madrid. Or ‘Madrid 6 Barcelona 5’ according to Madrid-based sport paper AS, who prefer club and city one-upmanship. Not a single player who makes his living in the footballing powerhouses of Manchester, Munich or Milan made the XI. Not one who plays in Turin, Dortmund or Paris either. Casillas; Alves, Pique, Ramos, Marcelo; Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta; Messi, Falcao, Ronaldo are the chosen few, voted for by their peers from 49 players’ unions worldwide. It’s an incredible, if awkwardly named, FIFA/FIFPro Team, but it’s partly subjective and arguments will prevail. Why no Philipp Lahm, captain of Bayern Munich and Germany? What about Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero or Vincent Kompany? Andrea Pirlo, Giorgio Chiellini or Gianluigi Buffon from Italy? There’s no Petr Cech or Ashley Cole from Chels ...

Every time this player features in the Atletico Madrid lineup, you can sense the trembling of the defenders on the opposition team. Some may rise to the challenge of stopping the 26-year-old former Porto striker, while others—and this is the vast majority—seem to enjoy the worst game of their career as Falcao arrives to make a mockery of their defending. This guy is serious about his football and, obviously, scoring goals. He arrived at the Vicente Calderon with huge pressure placed on his shoulders, with the £34 million signing the star at Atletico after Sergio Aguero left for Manchester City last summer. But Falcao absorbs the pressure. No, he doesn't just absorb it. He relishes it. He lives for it. Chelsea fans won't need to be reminded of his hat trick against the Blues in the European Super Cup as they prepare for the biggest transfer of the year. He is one of the most feared strikers in world football, and rightly so, for Falcao has scored a mammoth total of 49 goals in just 54 games in the cal ...
Sergio Aguero could be on his way out of the Etihad – with Barcelona star David Villa ­ already being lined up as a mega-money replacement, writes the Sunday People. Striker Aguero was a £38million signing from Atletico Madrid just 18 months ago. And he will remain forever in the hearts of all Blue Moonies after his sensational late winner against QPR on the final day of last season that snatched the Premier League title from Manchester United’s hands. Sources close to the Argentinian striker claim his spirits are low and he has become unsettled at the club this season after their Champions League exit and amid dressing room unrest. It is understood that City sporting director Txiki Begiristain and chief executive Ferran Soriano – with their strong Barca links – have identified Villa as a potential transfer target. The Spaniard – a World Cup and European Championship winner – is said to be assessing his future at the Nou Camp following manager Pep Guardiola’s departure in the summer. Aguer ...
Falcao fits at Juve, claims Tardelli 12 December 2012 Ex-Juventus midfielder Marco Tardelli said Atletico Madrid's Radamel Falcao is the 'logical answer' to solve the side's striker issues. Juve are reportedly chasing Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente, but the Republic of Ireland assistant coach believes it is the Atletico Madrid attacker who would be the best option. "I would love Juve to sign Falcao, he would be the logical answer to the striker question," Tardelli told La Gazetta dello Sport. "But, for the figures being bandied around (60m euros), it would be virtually impossible." Tardelli feels the Manchester City pair of Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez could also provide the side with an added attacking threat should the Serie A champions be priced out of a move for Falcao. He added: "So in that case, I think Carlos Tevez or Sergio Aguero would be good. South Americans suit Italy well and they would both fit at Juve. "Personally, I think Tevez would be perfect." The 58-year-old also reserved ...
