Real Madrid’s hunt for a focal point to replace Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have taken them to Manchester – as the odds of them signing Sergio Aguero have crumbled this afternoon.
After a series of bets on the transfer, we have slashed the price of the Argentine going to the Bernabeu from 33/1 to 6/1.
They are now the favourites to land the striker this summer, ahead of city rivals – and former club – Atletico (7/1).
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Could it be a case of Sergi-go this summer for Aguero? Most clubs would be loathe to lose such a talent, but maybe not Pep Guardiola – who frequently dropped him last season, and would probably unearth yet another world beater to replace Aguero with.”
