Thomas Tuchel has called Sergio Aguero ‘world-class’ amid rumours of a Chelsea move for the Man City superstar.
On Monday, it was revealed that Aguero will leave the Etihad at the end of the season.
He’s already won a host of trophies in Manchester, including four Premier League titles and one FA Cup.

The forward could improve that haul in the coming months as City chase the quadruple.
Following the announcement of his departure, a host of top clubs became linked with Aguero.
Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are at the front of the queue. They’re joined by Chelsea and Manchester United, who want to keep Aguero in the Prem.
Tuchel has now responded to the transfer rumours.
Speaking about Aguero at a press conference, he said: “There is no words needed for me about the achievements of this guy, he is a world-class player.
“We have three competitions in which we are in with Manchester City so I will not speak about their player.”
Chelsea are thought to be looking into attacking alternatives for the misfiring Timo Werner.
The 25-year-old has scored just five league goals so far and has been labelled as one of the ‘flops of the season’ by pundit Micah Richards.
Another option is Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland. His entourage is currently touring Europe to speak to interested clubs, including Chelsea.
When asked about the Haaland links, Tuchel continued: “There is big news around him and his agent. It seems like they are creating a race for the player and I will fully accept this for a player of Borussia Dortmund, a promising player of course.
“He isn’t our player and is not in our squad.”
The German boss was named Premier League Manager of the Month for March as the Blues gained seven points from three games.
Speaking about his award, Tuchel said: “I’m grateful to receive an award like this and it means I am at the right club. I see it as a team award. It feels good. It’s not the end of the road, we’re still competing in April and May. We want to produce.”
Chelsea take on Sam Allardyce’s West Brom on Saturday at 12:30.
