Can Man City Keep Sergio Agüero Out Of Real Madrid’s Clutches?

sergio-agueromcfcThe rumors have already begun in the Spanish newspapers that Real Madrid want to make Manchester City star Sergio Agüero their next galáctico.

Other than Paul Pogba, there are very few really great players that Real Madrid could buy to usher in the Rafa Benitez era.

Rumors of Aguero to Real are not new. Even since he left Madrid in 2011 to join City there have been stories that he wants to return to the Spanish capital

Aguero ended last season as the Premier League’s top scorer with 26 goals, five more than second-placed Harry Kane. This came despite the Argentinian missing a month of football from 6 December until 10 January because of a knee injury.

When agreeing the new five-year contract last August the centre-forward moved to address speculation that a return to Spanish football could occur.

“The reality seems to be that ever since I came here, during every close season, there have always been rumours suggesting that I might be returning to Spain,” he said. “There has always been this speculation but I certainly never pay much attention to it.

“People hear this stuff flying around and they take it seriously but I can tell the fans and everyone at City to relax. I’m going to be here until I see out my contract.”

When fit, Aguero is the best striker in the Premier League. While Aguero says he wants to see out his contract, which runs until 2019, he still owns a house not that far from the Real Madrid training facility. If Real came in with a £80 million offer, would the Argentina striker be able to turn it down?
