Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed his interest in Argentina striker Sergio Aguero should his international team-mate Carlos Tevez get his wish and move away from the Etihad Stadium.
Aguero said on Friday that a move to England would be of interest to him, with Chelsea also having been linked to the 23-year-old Atletico Madrid man.
Mancini has already given thought to the role Aguero could play at City, and told Sky Sports News: "Aguero is a player that can play for Manchester City because he is young and he is a good player like Carlos. He can score a lot of goals and can play with Mario (Balotelli), with Edin (Dzeko)... it could be (that he joins)."
Tevez has told City he wants to leave in order to spend more time with his children, although the club are understood to want in the region of £50million for him.
Brazilian side Corinthians have had a bid of £40million turned down for the Argentinian, and their president Andres Sanchez said on Friday that Italian side Juventus had made an even bigger offer for the player.
Aguero has also been linked with a move to Atletico's city rivals Real Madrid, as well as Juve.
