Real Madrid are lining up an offer for Man City forward Sergio Aguero according to the Daily Mirror.
The Spanish giants are confident they can successfully appeal their current FIFA transfer ban and have their sights firmly set on improving their striking options and see the 28-year-old as the ideal man for the job.
Zinedine Zidane does of course have an infamous ‘BBC’ strike-force of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo to call upon but may well feel that Aguero would provide a more clinical central option than the French portion of his attacking trio.
Benzema is a solid goal-scoring weapon but he doesn’t come close to the levels that the likes of Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi at rivals Barcelona and the former Lyon man has at times become the subject of a great deal of abuse from a contingent of Real Madrid supporters.
Aguero has proven a massive success since his move to Man City in 2011 and prior to that point the South American had been a big hit in Spain with Real’s local rivals Atletico, the lethal finisher scoring 101 goals in his five seasons at the Vicente Calderon.
Whilst it’s true Man City have no reason to consider selling Aguero it’s equally true that Real Madrid would offer the Argentine a better shot at securing Champions League glory.
Aguero is certainly valued in the £90m price-bracket and were he to be sold today there’s no reason his transfer wouldn’t be close to, or in excess of, the current world-record fee which is currently held by Paul Pogba following his summer move to Man United.
