CHELSEA target Sergio Aguero is demanding £200,000-a-week wages from his next club, according to reports.
The Manchester City legend is leaving the Etihad at the end of the season when his contract expires and there are four clubs looking to land the 32-year-old.

And the striker’s agent told Italian giants Juve they would have to cough up £200k-a-week in order to sign him, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Aguero is trying to capitalise on his free agent status with any club not required to pay a transfer fee for such a talented player.
Barca are unlikely to be able to cough up the big dough with their finances crippled by Covid-19. But the chance to play with his friend Lionel Messi – if he stays in Catalonia – could tempt Aguero to the Nou Camp.
Juve are also facing financial difficulties with the Old Lady ‘considering selling Cristiano Ronaldo’.
As a result it is only PSG or Chelsea who could likely afford Aguero’s demands.
Kylian Mbappe’s future will dictate whether the French champions make a move.
But Chelsea are reportedly in the running for a move at the end of the season, something the player is said to be aware of.
And Aguero is thought to be highly motivated by the prospect of breaking the Premier League goal record.
Currently on 181 strikes, he is 79 behind Alan Shearer’s leading tally of 260.
The Argentine has averaged just over 18 goals per season for City, a ratio which will require around five years to catch the Newcastle legend.
