Real Madrid are plotting a £48 million raid on Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in the summer, according to The Sun on Sunday.

The Argentinian, who has scored 16 goals already this season, is said to be Madrid president Florentino Perez's top transfer target and he remains hopeful of bringing the player to the Bernabeu.

Perez met with City owner Sheikh Mansour in Abu Dhabi this week and a 'top Real source' said: "It is certain that the club's interest in Aguero was discussed.

"No offer was made, it was more of a conversation in which a possible deal was brought up."

Real pulled out of a deal to sign the striker back in 2011 from local rivals Atletico, and it is understood that Aguero remains hopeful that he will at some point in his career become a Madrid player.

Perez is also said to be a long-time admirer of the player, who has netted 66 goals since his arrival at the Etihad.

As well as Aguero, Perez and Sheikh Mansour reportedly discussed the potential transfer of Iker Casillas, who has suffered a torrid time at the Bernabeu in recent years.

City seemingly are after a new goalkeeper following the decline in form of usual number one Joe Hart, with Costel Pantillimon expected to regain his place in the first team for the visit of Swansea this afternoon.

However, it is not known whether any deal will be struck with either player, although Perez may use Casillas as part of a deal to land Aguero in next summer's transfer window.
