Sergio Aguero: Who will replace him at Atletico Madrid?

With Sergio Aguero now gone from Atletico Madrid, the club needs to urgently find a substitute forward, the right man to replace the striker who was the shining light for the Madrid club. The cruelty of destiny has made things worse for Atletico,  as forward Diego Costa injured his knee in training yesterday & will be operated on, leaving him out of action for about six months. The only class forward upfront is Diego Forlan who has renounced holidays after his Copa America exploits to fly back & help Atletico qualify for next season’s Europa League. So what now?

Which of these strikers is set to replace Aguero at Atletico Madrid?

There are four candidates that Atletico Madrid have on their list to substitute Sergio Aguero. With fresh money in from the selling of David De Gea to Manchester United & Aguero to Manchester City, the club can now buy another top quality replacement. The names are:

  • Giuseppe Rossi (Villareal)
  • Falcao (Oporto)
  • Rondón (Malaga FC)
  • Daniel Osvaldo (Espanyol)
The favourite at this stage is Daniel Osvaldo, but his Club RCD Espanyol ask a hefty price of + 20m €. This coincides with another favourite, Rossi, whose asking price at his club Villareal is €25 m. I personally would love to see Rossi land at Atletico since he is a world class player & would adapt perfectly at the club.

Having said this, we will no doubt be getting fresh news in the near future. Who will replace Aguero at Atletico? Stay tuned!
