Real Madrid are refusing to give up in their ambitious bid to sign Sergio Aguero and would be prepared to offer Gonzalo Higuain in exchange.

Sportsmail revealed last month that Real president Florentino Perez was desperate to prise Aguero from Manchester City after missing out on the former Atletico Madrid striker last summer.

Madrid newspaper Marca claims that the Spanish giants have ‘directly and indirectly’ let it be known to the 23-year-old that he would be welcomed with open arms to ‘a city that loves him and his family’.

The nine-time European Cup winners also believe that Aguero really wanted to join them when he left Atletico last summer, when Real were distracted by a bid for Neymar – despite Aguero repeatedly expressing his delight at joining City.

Despite such wooing, Perez appears to value Aguero only at the same level which City paid for him.

According to Marca, Real would be prepared to pay £37.5million or offer Higuain and about £5m for a player who has lit up the Barclays Premier League, scoring 21 goals in 37 appearances this summer.

Higuain has scored 17 goals in 36 appearances and is considering his future after falling behind Karim Benzema in Jose Mourinho’s plans.

City have shown interest in the former River Plate striker, but would rather use Carlos Tevez as part of a swap deal.

Chelsea, Juventus, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the 24-year-old.
