Chelsea told Declan Rice as good as Busquets

Sergio Aguero believes Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice is at the ‘same level’ as Barcelona legend Sergio Busquets.

Over the past few seasons – Rice has developed into one of the very best holing midfielders in the Premier League and is a man that is ready for that next step.

It is no secret that Chelsea are massive fans of the gifted midfielder and are ready to make a move – and they have been told just why they should sign the midfielder.

‘For me he is a great player and is at the same level as the best midfielders like Busquets, Rodri and Casemiro,’ Aguero said of Rice in an interview with Stake.

‘It seems to me that he is valued. What happens is that with him not being in a ‘Big Six’ team, he does not get talked about as much.

‘But he has proven himself and I think he is one of the strengths of the England team at the World Cup.’

Rice is currently in Qatar with England as they prepare for the World Cup and Manchester City hero Aguero has praised Gareth Southgate’s squad.

‘I think they have a team to get excited about,’ Aguero added.

‘They could not win the Euro but they showed in that tournament that they are a team to be feared.

‘I know they have had some losses in defence but they have replacements and also a mix of young players already established like Foden, Mount, Declan Rice, Rashford, Bellingham and Saka with others with more experience like Sterling, Henderson and Kane.’
