Balague: Real Madrid have no plans to sign Manchester City's Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but Guillem Balague believes the La Liga club will not make a move for the striker this summer.

According to Sky Sports' Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, Real Madrid will not make a move for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero this summer - despite what reports such as those in the Mirror may suggest.

Balague believes the Spanish giants will monitor players who fit into the Galactico business model or status - which Aguero undoubtedly does - but he does not expect the club to move for the player yet.

Despite failing to secure back-to-back Premier League title successes with City, Aguero won the league's golden boot award, scoring 26 goals in 30 appearances, and the Argentine looks set to stay at the Etihad Stadium.

Balague says Real Madrid are focused on their pursuit of David de Gea and recalling players that impressed out on loan, rather than trying to poach attacking talent from the Premier League.

“The story of every summer with Real Madrid is they try to maintain the business model that has worked, which is to try to get a Galactico every year," Balague told Sky Sports.

"There isn’t many players that people would be excited about Kun Aguero is certainly one of those and I think the media are responding to that.

“The plan is clear, to get De Gea and get players that were happy with on loan like Denis Cheryshev but there are no plans at the moment to get anybody as big as Aguero.”

Real Madrid sacked Carlo Ancelotti last week after a season without silverware. The La Liga club finished in second place in the league table, two points behind champions Barcelona and were knocked out in the Champions League semi-finals by Italian giants Juventus.

Whatever business the new manager conducts, the pressure is always on at the Santiago Bernabeu.
