Real Madrid are ready to test Manchester City's resolve for Sergio Aguero. The Sunday Mirror says Real boss Jose Mourinho now wants to bring him to the Bernabeu. City signed Aguero for £35 million a year ago from Real's rivals Atletico Madrid.

The Argentinian had been coveted by Real for some time - but Atletico were reluctant to deal directly with their bitter rivals from across the city.

City manager Roberto Mancini wants to bolster rather than weaken his squad but if Aguero wanted to return to Spain it might prove to be difficult to hang on to the front man.
