The Manchester City hero has been coveted by the La Liga champions for some time but former club Atletico didn’t want to sell to their rivals.

Keepin' it Real: Aguero emerges as a £50m target for Mourinho

Manchester City hero Sergio Aguero is a £50million target for Real Madrid.
It was the Argentinian’s last gasp goal that clinched the ¬Premier League title for City in the 3-2 win over QPR.
And Real boss Jose Mourinho now wants to bring him to the Bernabeu. Aguero was signed for £35 million a year ago from Atletico Madrid.
He had been coveted by Real for some time – but Atletico were reluctant to deal directly with their bitter rivals from across the city.
It would certainly be easier to sign him from City.
City manager Roberto Mancini wants to bolster rather than weaken his squad but if Aguero wanted to return to Spain it might prove to be difficult to hang on to the front man.
Mancini has Arsenal’s Robin van Persie and AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic as possible close season signings and their ¬arrival would help balance the loss of Aguero if Real are successful with their mega-bid.
