The La Liga giants have been quietly linked with a move for the Argentinian for the past three months, and now it appears new manager Carlo Ancelotti is ready to make a move.
Aguero moved to deny rumours he could be leaving the club back in May, stating: “I’m very happy to be at Manchester City. I’m committed to them. It’s a great club.”
New Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is adamant he does not want Aguero to leave, and hopes the Argentine will be excited about the prospect of playing alongside Alvaro Negredo, whose signing from Sevilla is set to be completed in the next 24 hours.
City are still hopeful of completing a deal to bring in Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, and with Edin Dzeko set to stay, last season’s Premier League runners-up could have the league’s strongest strike force should Aguero stay.
Sources in the Spanish capital however reveal Aguero is concerned about falling down the pecking order at the Etihad, and Madrid are ready to pounce.
Carlo Ancelotti is close to selling Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli, with the Italian club seeking a replacement for PSG-bound Edison Cavani.
That means Real will be in the market for a new striker, and have identified Aguero as their number one target.
