Bernabeu boss wants Etihad Stadium striker.
Real Madrid will offer Manchester City up to £8.5million plus striker Gonzalo Higuain in a deal which would see Sergio Aguero move to the Bernabeu.
Jose Mourinho has put Aguero at the top of his summer wishlist, and would have been encouraged by the recent spat between the player at City boss Roberto Mancini over the Argentine’s ‘silly’ injury.
Furious Mancini has ordered an inhouse inquest into how Aguero has been sidelined yet again with foot blisters.

One wonders why Jose Mourinho doesn’t offer Argentine Gonzalo Higuain more first team action as the 24 year old has been practically unstoppable this season, notching up 24 goals despite making just 23 starts in all competitions. Sergio Aguero has been similarly successful at Man City but could be tempted by a move to the Spanish giants though Roberto Mancini will surely not wish to entertain offers for a player he only signed last summer.
Higuain has scored 101 goals in 210 appearances for Real Madrid since his move to the club from River Plate back in the winter of 2006 and French born forward has struggled to get a regular first team berth under various managers and could well be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
Aguero has taken to life in the Premier League incredibly well, scoring 21 goals this season though if Man City fail to clinch the title perhaps the former Atletico Madrid man would be considering his options, especially if Mancini left the club and a new boss took over at the Etihad Stadium?
