John Terry rubbishes claims that he blocked Sergio Aguero's move to Chelsea

John Terry has shutdown claims that he told Chelsea officials that he wasn't keen on Sergio Aguero after the Blues chased the forward a decade ago.

Chelsea were on the hunt for the 'next big thing' and The Athletic reported that the former Blues captain made it aware to the club that he had reservations on the Argentine. 

But Terry has taken to social media to rubbish all claims of any links with blocking a transfer for Sergio Aguero to complete a move to Stamford Bridge when he was at Atletico Madrid.

In a response on Instagram, the former Chelsea defender said: "Where do these get the stories from? If they bothered calling players agents it would solve an awful lot of nonsense!"

It was initially reported that the 38-year-old wasn't impressed with Aguero's movement, and preferred then Valencia forward David Villa. 

Roman Abramovich had more than two bids rejected by the Spanish club for Sergio Aguero, who ended up joining Manchester City who then recently had a cash injection following a takeover.

A transfer to Stamford Bridge appeared likely following Aguero's comments: "Chelsea are a great club," he said. "They have become one of the most feared in Europe over recent years. I look at players like Drogba and Lampard and they have been — and still are — the best players in their positions in the world. I could really learn from players like that, there is no doubt.

"London would be a really amazing city to live in as well, myself and my wife could be really happy there."

But no move failed to materialise, and John Terry has quashed any links connecting him with the failure of any transfer for the Argentina forward.

Chelsea travel to the Eithad this weekend to face Pep Guardiola's side, and sit ahead of them currently in the Premier League table, heading into Saturday's clash.
