Real Madrid are desperate to solve their attacking issues and are ready to make a bid for Sergio Aguero.
According to The Guardian, Manchester City’s striker has been identified as the main solution for Real’s lack of efficiency in front of goal and Florentino Perez is preparing a January bid for the Argentinian.
Sergio Aguero has only recently become Manchester City’s all-time top goalscorer. On the 1st of November, Aguero scored his 178th goals for Manchester City, surpassing the previous record of 177 goals set by Eric Brook 79 years ago. Meanwhile, Aguero has scored another goal and reached 179 – the highest number of goals for one player in the 123 years history of Manchester City.
Although the news of a transfer to Real Madrid has been presented as a rumor, the source even indicated a potential transfer fee. ‘Los Galacticos’ would be willing to pay €70m to Manchester City for Sergio Aguero.
Florentino Perez is desperately looking for a solution to solve his side’s inefficiency in front of the goal. Names like Neymar, Harry Kane or Paulo Dybala have all been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu, but they mostly seem long-term targets, rather than immediate solutions. However, Perez doesn’t want to continue in the same manner as the season started – so far, Ronaldo (1), Benzema (1) and Bale (2) only have four goals scored in La Liga and the team’s lack of attacking threat has brought them ten points behind league leaders Barcelona.
Manchester City are enjoying a great start of the season in Premier League, having registered 11 wins and one draw in the 12 rounds played so far. Pep Guardiola’s side are playing so well that the Catalan manager can even afford to leave Aguero on the bench for some of the matches, as it happened in the last round during the 2-0 win over Leicester.
The Guardian informs that Florentino Perez is counting on the fact that Manchester City’s executives would be thrilled to receive €70m on the 29-year-old striker, given the fact that they are planning to bring in Alexis Sanchez. Furthermore, the move would ease the Citizen’s compliance with the FFP regulations, which proved problematic in the past for the club.
