Manchester United duo influencing the next move for Aguero

Summer free agent targets a move up the goalscoring charts with Chelsea; Ronaldo linked with Real Madrid return.

SOCCER: Sergio Aguero wants to move up the Premier League goalscoring charts - and that has put Chelsea in the box seat to sign the free agent.

The Manchester City striker is set to leave the Etihad in the summer, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all said to be interested in recruiting the 32-year-old.

However, sources close to the City legend have said his desire to break Premier League records could keep him in England.

Aguero is fourth in the list of leading scorers, with 181 goals, just six behind Andy Cole.

While Alan Shearer's total of 260 looks out of reach, second-placed Wayne Rooney's 208 could be a realistic target if he signed a two- or three-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

Sources told the Evening Standard that Chelsea are "at the table", with his £250,000-a-week wages ruling out almost every other Premier League club.

The Blues have moved in to 9/4 favourites with Sky Bet to land AgueroBarcelona is seen as his next most likely destination, with the La Liga giants priced at 5/1.

Chelsea are still rated 6/1 shots with Paddy Power to land Aguero, however, with Barcelona priced at 11/10.

The Telegraph, meanwhile, says Aguero's desire to stay in the Premier League and prove himself away from Manchester City means he is willing to forego Champions League soccer.

And that they say brings Tottenham into the reckoning.

Spurs can be backed at 50/1 with Paddy Power to land Aguero in the summer.

Ronaldo is the Real deal says presidential hopeful

Real Madrid presidential hopeful Enrique Riquelme said he would re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo if he won the upcoming elections.

Riquelme, 32, is unlikely to prevent long-time president Florentino Perez securing a fifth term in office.

Perez called the election at short notice, which Riquelme said made it "too complicated" for him to stand.

Nevertheless, the CEO of Cox Energy, was quizzed on his plans for Real Madrid should he assume control.

And while bringing back Ronaldo would be one of Riquelme's main priorities, a change of manager would also be on the cards, according to the Daily Mail via El Partidazo de COPE.

"Zidane would not be my coach," he said. "The sporting management would look at another profile with a different strategy."

He then went on to highlight two managers he would be interested in appointing.

"'I personally like (Jurgen) Klopp a lot and Raul is doing very well."

'Concerned' Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool did not play well

It falls a long way short of The Sun pronouncement: Real Madrid presidential candidate Enrique Riquelme vows to replace Zidane with Klopp.

But it does give us an excuse to dust off the next Liverpool manager betting, which sees Steven Gerrard as 13/8 favourite with Sky Bet.

However, even with Perez in charge, a return for Ronaldo could still be on the cards. Paddy Power price Real at 5/1 to be his next permanent club.

Public set to miss out on share of Wimbledon tickets

TENNIS: The public share of Wimbledon tickets is set to be lower than usual this year after more than 3,500 debenture holders were assured they will be prioritised in the allocation for a reduced-capacity championships.

The All England Club would normally host a daily crowd of around 40,000 but this will almost certainly not be possible this summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A capacity of about 30% is understood to be the latest base figure for the tournament from June 28-July 11.

However, The Times report that organisers are increasingly confident more spectators will be allowed nearer the time as restrictions ease.

Naomi Osaka currently leads the women's singles betting, with the world No. 1 currently 6/1 to claim the title with Sky Bet.

Serena Williams, who is without a Wimbledon singles title since 2016, is 15/2.

Novak Djokovic is 6/4 favourite for the men's crown, with Andy Murray 25/1.
