Manchester City star eyeing move to LaLiga giants this summer
Manchester City striker Sergio Agüero wants to join Real Madrid this summer with his future in the Premier League still up in the air, per The Sun.
Agüero, 28, joined City in 2011 from Real’s city rivals Atletico Madrid and has become a club legend, helping them win two Premier League titles, but his place in the team has become under threat since Pep Guardiola took over as manager.
Rumours of a rift between the pair have been added to by the emergence of Brazilian teenager Gabriel Jesus in January to take the Argentine’s place up front.
The striker completed his summer move from Palmeiras in a £27million deal. He went on to score three goals in two games before injuring his foot against Bournemouth, most likely ending his season.

As a result, Agüero is back in the side, but Guardiola’s demands for high pressing mean his long-term future is still in doubt.
According to the report, Los Blancos are willing to spend £60million to lure him to the Santiago Bernabeu, as they look to find a new focal point for their attack.
