Real Madrid are set to ramp up their interest in Manchester City forward, Sergio Aguero, according to reports in Spain.
The forward is no longer first-choice since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras despite scoring 13 goals this season in all competitions.
According to reports coming out of Spain, the Argentinian forward has fallen out with manager, Pep Guardiola after being overlooked for the Manchester derby and substituted during the 4-1 win over Tottenham, which consequently saw him throw his gloves up in the air after being substituted.
Real have been alerted to the possibility of signing Aguero for £62 million after tentative enquiries for Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi were instantly rejected, and Florentino Perez is set to test the Citizen’s resolve.
The move to the Galactico’s could see Aguero move back to Madrid, where he spent five years at rivals, Atletico. Despite playing second fiddle, the 29-year old striker has been in superb form and currently has the second-best goals per minute ratio in the Premier League; scoring a goal every 101 minutes.
To further intensify rumours of talks with a move to Real Madrid, Aguero will not be a part of the Manchester City squad that faces Leicester tonight in the Carabao Cup despite playing the full 90 minutes in the previous round.
With the transfer window opening in close to thirteen days’ time, Madrid will be keeping tabs on his situation as the relationship between Aguero and Guardiola continues to drift apart.
