Miguel Ángel Gil Marín has told Spanish media that Atlético have rejected a €45m offer from Real Madrid for Sergio Agüero.

“Yesterday I received a €45m offer by Real Madrid for Agüero and I said no,” he said. “I’ve also turned down an offer by Chelsea, who were willing to spend €60m on both Agüero and Godín.”

Gil Marín then tried to reassure Atlético fans that their star player would not be crossing over to the dark side.

“I’m certain that because of the relationship that our club has with Florentino Pérez, (Real) Madrid will not be paying the clause of any of our players and we will not be sitting down to negotiate a deal for Aguero this summer,” he said.

However, Sky Sports News in the UK understand that no bid has been made by Chelsea and that the claims by Gil Marin have ‘no foundation’.

Cadena SER, Spain’s biggest radio network, reported earlier on Tuesday that Real Madrid would pay the striker’s buyout clause of €45m this summer.

Spanish journalist José Ramón de la Morena, the Director of the football radio programme “El Larguero” on the Cadena SER network, broke the story and claimed that Atlético officials “assume that at end of the season Real Madrid will pay the buyout clause for Kun Aguero.”

Kun has always maintained that he would never play for our eternal rival, so we hope for dear life that the Rojiblanco idol denies the claim soon.

This rumour surfaced just a day after it had been suggested that Diego Forlan was “desperate” to join los Blancos.

Amidst speculation of Rojiblanco manager Quique Sanchez Flores’ possible sacking, Gil Marín assured that Quique will complete the season with the club.

“Quique will finish the season with Atlético, and just like what was done last summer, we will sit down and talk.”

    Nice calm answer when asked about the sacking, seems like this guy speak much better then our president :/

    Question to all of you: Do you believe what Gil Marín’s saying? It just seems unbelievable with the amounts of money mentioned.

  • Garymadrid

    He is a lying Bxxxxxd. They are trying to turn us all against the wee fella and lets not let them do it.

  • If they have got a brain they will sell neither Agüero, Forlán nor Godin, and if the lets say “did sell them” what would the replacement be? And if, and I say, if this actually happened, way to go and pick your club? Out of all they just need “Real” Madrid?!

  • Flo

    In the end it doesn’t matter what they are biding. If the player doesn’t want to go and the club doesn’t want to sell him.

  • Ringo Schut

    If he left, I wouldn’t care where.
    I just want him to stay!

  • NiñoTorres

    I don’t believe him one bit. If Real don’t want to pay 4m for Van Nistelrooy, how are they going to bid 45m for Kun? And how can he reject this “offer”, when they have apparently met his supposed release clause? As for Chelsea, I doubt they would go for Kun or Godín when they are so close to signing David Luiz…

    Kun has said before he will never play for Real Madrid, and I believe him. I don’t think he would do that to us, but if he did I would be extremely disappointed 🙁
