Real Madrid is ready to make Sergio Aguero and Manchester City offers that neither will be able to refuse. The Spanish giant wants to sign the City star this summer, and it will make a transfer bid of at least £45 million ($68.2 million) to pry him from City’s grasp. Aguero would then be willing to leave Manchester for Madrid in order to be closer to his family, according to the Star. “Aguero is becoming disillusioned with life in Manchester following the break-up of his marriage to Diego Maradona’s daughter Giannina,” the report claims. “Giannina now spends most of her time in Madrid with the couple’s son Ben and Aguero has told close friends he is finding it ‘impossible’ to be apart from him.” Aguero is one of world soccer’s premier strikers, scoring prolifically for both City and Argentina. The 24-year-old joined City from Atletico Madrid in summer 2011 for a club-record £38 million ($57.6 million) and led it to the Premier League title in his first season in England. The 2012-13 campaign has been tougher on Aguero, as his form has suffered due to family issues and injuries. He could make a seamless return to La Liga (Spanish first division), having already played five seasons there. Real Madrid fans would likely welcome him, despite his previous service to crosstown rival Atletico Madrid. Real Madrid should be active in the summer transfer window. Manager Jose Mourinho, star forward Cristiano Ronaldo  and a few others are expected to leave the club, which will spark a massive squad reconstruction project. Aguero is reportedly Madrid’s top transfer target, and his arrival would not only ease the blow of Ronaldo’s departure, but also help the re-election prospects of club president Florentino Perez. City will not relish the thought of losing its top striker, but the reported fee will help it buy Aguero’s replacement. Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani are among the top strikers City is expected to pursue this summer. Last year, Maradona said that Aguero had made a “mistake” in joining City. This summer the player known as “Kun” just might take his former father-in-law’s advice and correct that error. Real Madrid, City and Aguero could all benefit from the move, but the real winner would be young Ben, who would once again have his father close by. Have a question for Marcus Kwesi O’Mard?
