Real Madrid to offer Manchester City epic swap deal

Real Madrid are considering a sensational double player offer in exchange for Manchester City's Sergio Aguero, reports the Daily Star.

The La Liga outfit have put the signing of Aguero at the top of their priorities and are willing to part with both Karim Benzema and Sami Khedira to land the 25-year-old striker.

Benzema had been linked with a move to Arsenal during the summer as Arsene Wenger looked to increase his options in attack.

Wenger eventually opted to sign Mesut Ozil instead for £42.5m, but a future move for the French striker was never ruled out.

Spanish paper Marca had claimed that Bernabeu chiefs were keen to offload the player but Arsenal never offered to pay the £40m asking price.

Khedira, who will also be part of a reported offer for Aguero, was the subject of a deadline day move from Manchester United.

The German midfielder confirmed that David Moyes made a last minute bid of €40m to bring him to Old Trafford but the move was blocked due to Ozil's departure to the Gunners.

Manchester United had been looking to shore up their midfield options but eventually opted to sign Marouane Fellaini.

Both players are not thought to be part of Carlo Ancelotti's long-term plans at the Bernabeu, hence why they are willing to part with both in exchange for Argentine international Aguero.
