With speculation over Sergio Aguero going to Real Madrid this summer returning, Lewis Doe writes how Manchester City cannot allow their star man to leave.
Sergio Aguero is already a Manchester City legend because he scored the club’s final goal last season which won them their first Premier League trophy.
The recent departure of Mario Balotelli proves that City are not afraid to move their best players on but the club should do whatever they can to stop Aguero from leaving this summer.
Several online media sources are suggesting that Real Madrid will make an attempt to sign Aguero this summer, regardless of cost as they look to make up for their short comings in La Liga this season.
It’s a move which is dependant on a number of different things but it could well happen as the Spanish champions have the resources to get City’s attention.
City need to try and hang onto Aguero for as long as they can because he is a special player, seems to love the Premier League and perfectly suited to the way City are currently playing their football.
Firstly, there’s the issue of Jose Mourinho’s future at Real Madrid with many sources tipping him to go back to Chelsea at the end of the season.
If he’s replaced then the boss who comes in could look at Aguero’s history of playing in Madrid, with Atletico, and try to tempt him back to an area of Spain that he already knows.
On the other hand, this could be the decisive point which means this story is rubbish because of how passionate Real Madrid are over their socio-political roots. Few players have moved between the two Madrid clubs.
Secondly, there is the issue of Roberto Mancini’s future at Manchester City with no guarantee he won’t be sacked in the summer if he doesn’t retain the Premier League title.
This will leave open a vacancy for another manager to fill and Aguero would not be blamed for wanting to stay and enjoy a new challenge and adventure under a new boss at the Etihad Stadium.
It’s all hearsay at this stage but Aguero’s quality means he is always going to be courted by the best clubs around. City’s job is to make sure he’s happy and not give him any reasons or way to move away from the club.
He’s perfectly suited to the football at either club as he can receive the ball into feet under pressure, can see holes in the opposition defence and his finishing skills under pressure are superb.
