Real Madrid to test the water with City approach

Real Madrid are looking to capture the signing of Sergio Aguero this summer, one year after his arrival at Manchester City, says the Daily Mail.

Aguero has long been on the radar of Real Madrid but couldn’t come to terms with the player’s former club Atletico Madrid due to the rivalry between both clubs. (Express)

But Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes this summer might be his opportunity to land the Argentine striker, who has 14 goals in the league for City this season.

It is thought that Madrid will fund the move for Aguero through the sale of fellow Argentine Ganzalo Higuain. The Madrid striker has long been out-of-favour with the hierarchy at the Bernabeu, despite Jose Mourinho’s wishes to keep the player at the club.

Chelsea, who have led the race for Higuain’s signature in the past, are once again thought to be interested.

But while Perez and Madrid have missed out of Neymar to fierce rivals Barcelona, the Madrid president is determined to add a marquee signing to his squad and would love nothing more than to bring Aguero back to Spain.

It’s unlikely, however, that Manchester City will be interested in parting with the striker, who has adapted well to the Premier League, but Real Madrid are said to be willing to offer any amount it takes.

The stumbling block again is Aguero’s former club Atletico, who have asked City for assurances that the player would not be sold to Madrid within two seasons.
