Manchester City have made a fresh enquiry for Real Madrid defender Pepe.

It emerged City asked for Pepe during talks over Real's interest in Sergio Aguero.

The Mirror says Real president Florentino Perez attempted to put Aguero's future on the agenda when he was informing Soriano that Real would not be selling Portuguese defender Pepe to the Etihad club.

But the Premier League title chasers view Aguero as 'unsellable' and have already instructed the club's marketing men to step up their use of him in promotional campaigns.
