Man Utd boss Ferguson ponders Aguero bid

Manchester United remain keen on Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero.

The Daily Star says United have been eyeing up Fernando Torres' former Atletico Madrid strike partner for some time.

But Atletico insist it will take an offer of £40m to trigger talks for the Spanish League's Player of the Year.

The Argentine, nicknamed 'El Kun' after a Japanese cartoon caveman, has flourished since Torres left Spain to join Liverpool last summer, scoring 20 goals last season.

His agent, Jose Segui, admitted yesterday: "I have received an offer from an English club who have asked for it to be passed on to Atletico Madrid.

"I can't say anymore until I talk to the club about the offer. I can only say that we are talking about one of the best teams in Europe, but not Chelsea."
