Man City make £37M offer for Atletico Madrid striker Aguero

Manchester City are making a move for Atletico Madrid ace Sergio Aguero as they prepare to sell want-away captain Carlos Tevez.

Manchester City are making a move for Atletico Madrid ace Sergio Aguero as they prepare to sell want-away captain Carlos Tevez.

The Daily Mail says City have so far rejected talk they are in for the Argentine, who is also wanted by Real Madrid.

Yet after it emerged Juventus had offered Atletico Madrid £32.5m for Diego Maradona's son-in-law, the Spanish club claimed City had already bid £4.5m more. That in turn has forced Juve to look elsewhere for attacking reinforcements and they are now expected to challenge Tottenham for the signature of Villarreal's Giuseppe Rossi.

Aguero is seen as a natural replacement for Tevez although City still want £50m for their Argentinian talisman.
