Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is said to be interested in signing Manchester City top-scorer Sergio Aguero.

Real Madrid are reportedly considering a bid to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

The 23-year-old Argentinean was linked with a move to the Bernabeu prior to his £35m switch to the Etihad Stadium last summer, however former club Atletico Madrid were seemingly to be unwilling to deal directly with their great city rivals.

Gonzalo Higuain is said to be close to leaving Real and manager Jose Mourinho wants to bring Aguero in as a direct replacement, according to The Mirror.

Aguero scored 30 goals for the Citizens this season and the La Liga champions are reportedly willing to part with £50m to sign him.
