Strike duo could be part of any Aguero deal

Sergio AgueroManchester City‘s resolve to keep Sergio Aguero could be tested this summer, if Real Madrid offer Karim Benzema or Gonzalo Higuain in exchange.

Aguero has been linked with a return to Spain for some time and is thought to be a top target for Real in the summer.

So far this term, the former Atletico Madrid star has regularly failed to hit the heights he displayed in his first season at City as he helped them to the Premier League title, although he remains a world-class talent on his day.

City do not want to sell the Argentinian, who cost around £35million in 2011, but an offer from Real, with either Higuain or Benzema thrown in, may be tempting when they reassess things this summer following a disappointing campaign.

Any potential transfer deal between the two clubs could depend on managerial changes at both clubs over the close season. Speculation is growing that Roberto Mancini could leave the Etihad, and Jose Mourinho’s position as Real coach looks even less secure.
