European champions not planning summer bid for Aguero

Florentino Perez has dismissed suggestions Real Madrid are lining up a bid for Sergio Aguero, and insists the European champions have no urgent need to sign anyone.

After finally ending their long wait for a tenth European Cup last weekend, it had been claimed in Spain that Los Blancos would celebrate La Decima by making a move for the Manchester City ace. Since leaving Atletico for England in a £35million deal back in the summer of 2011, the Argentina international has added to his reputation as one of the best strikers in world football.

As well as scoring the goal which won City their first league title since 1968 two years ago, he was again in prolific form this term as they regained the crown from rivals United. Despite missing a chunk of the campaign through injury, Aguero still managed to score 28 goals in all competitions, a figure which would have looked even healthier were it not for his setbacks.

Although the 25-year-old still has three years left on his contract, it had been claimed that Real are set to launch an offer in the region of £60million to return him to the Spanish capital. However, president Perez dismissed these suggestions, telling Onda Cero: “We are not thinking about making a move for Aguero at the moment. Right now, there is no real urgency to sign any new players.”

For his part, and unlike his former team-mate and compatriot Carlos Tevez, Aguero has never hinted at a move away from the Etihad Stadium. Indeed, a day after the Blues beat West Ham United 2-0 to clinch the title, to go with their League Cup success of earlier this season, the former Vicente Calderon favourite said: “I’ll be back next season to win even more trophies.”
