Etihad star wanted by Spanish giants.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is wanted by Spanish giants Real Madrid, who have been alerted about the Argentine forward being home sick following the alleged break up of his marriage, the Sunday Express claim.
Aguero’s marriage to Diego Maradona’s daughter Giannina is reportedly over and she has returned to Argentina with son Ben. And that has left Aguero a lonely figure in Manchester, the report states.
Aguero is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and receiving treatment, but he would be a huge loss to City should he decide he wants to leave Manchester and return to Madrid where he spent five successful seasons with Real’s rivals Atletico Madrid, scoring 101 times in 234 appearances, before moving to the Premier League.
He has been a revelation in the Premier League with City, making 48 appearances and scoring 30 times in his debut season last year including firing home the title-winning goal deep into injury time on the final day of the campaign against QPR.
He has scored a further 10 times this season in 24 games and losing Aguero would be a huge blow to Manchester City and boss Roberto Mancini as they look to overhaul Manchester United’s seven-point gap at the top of the standings. A move in the summer, however, seems more feasible with City unlikely to do business in the January transfer window.
