Atletico Madrid expect to sell Sergio Aguero to Manchester City this week. AS says negotiations will now intensify with Argentina having been eliminated from the Copa America.

Atletico chief Miguel Angel Gil Marin has already opened talks with City over El Kun's sale, referring them to his €45 million buyout clause.

Juventus' offer has fallen short, while Real Madrid have decided not to pursue a deal so not to wreck the good relations they currently enjoy with the Atletico board.

Atletico coach Gregorio Manzano has already declared he expects to see Aguero sold before the start of the new season.
