Man City striker Sergio Aguero ready for Real Madrid switch
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has announced he would be open to a Real Madrid switch if any such opportunity came knocking on his door. This news has left the Eastlands in frenzy, since Sergio Aguero was the bread and butter of Manchester City’s attack last season.
The Argentina international proved himself to be deadly goal-scoring machine last term, even though it was his first season in the English Premier League. The former Atletico Madrid striker has been unable to record similar success this season because of successive injuries. Nonetheless, Sergio Aguero is still considered to be the most lethal weapon in Manchester City’s arsenal.
Sergio Aguero’s readiness to join Real Madrid should upset Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, especially after the departure of Mario Balotelli. The Italian gaffer is left with little string options in his squad now.
Before moving to Manchester City in the summers of 2011, Sergio Aguero was consistently being linked with a move to Real Madrid. Moving from Atletico Madrid to Real Madrid is far more difficult than it appears to be. The Spanish clubs are hail from the same city, which is why they are each other’s archrivals.
Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho would still be willing to spend on Sergio Aguero if he transfer-money in his hands; however, Manchester City’s asking price could hamper the transfer process.
Sergio Aguero, who had 30 goals and 10 assists under his belt in 48 appearances last season, has scored only 10 goals in 26 appearances for Manchester City this term. Nonetheless, losing the 24-year-old will be cause a lot of pain in Manchester City, since Sergio Aguero has turned into a fan favorite in just one year at the club.
The Argentine has become indispensable to the Manchester City squad with Mario Balotelli joining AC Milan this fall. Sergio Aguero is under pressure to return to Manchester City’s first-team following repetitive injuries to his knee.
Sergio Aguero has a contract that runs until the summer of 2016; however, Roberto Mancini will have a problem if the youngster hands in a transfer request. The likelihood of such scenario is very unlikely during the January transfer window, but interest from Real Madrid could spark a new transfer saga in the summers.
