City step up campaign to replace Tevez with Aguero

MANCHESTER CITY manager Roberto Mancini believes a bid for Argentina striker Sergio Aguero is imminent.

0The Atletico Madrid hitman is viewed as the ideal candidate to fill the void likely to be created by Carlos Tevez’s move to Brazilian club Corinthians.

Asked whether a firm offer had been made for Aguero, Mancini replied: “Maybe in the next few days. I have not spoken to anyone about it, but probably. I think so.” Aguero has already stated he was planning to decide upon his future this week as he prepares to return to Spain following Argentina’s Copa America exit.

Meanwhile, the Tevez saga with Corinthians continues, as both clubs continue talks over a plus £40m deal.

“I slept last night and I had a game to prepare for so I don’t know any more,” Mancini said on Tevez, following City’s 2-1 win over Vancouver.
