Real Madrid have made Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero their top summer transfer target, according to reports emanating from Spain.
Sky Sports' Spanish expert, Guillem Balague, claims Real are ready to offer Gonzalo Higuain in part exchange in a bid to lure Aguero away from the Etihad Stadium.
Aguero has been a major success at City since arriving from Atletico Madrid last summer, scoring 24 goals in all competitions.
The Argentine is thought to have been a long-term target for Real and reportedly turned them down in favour of City last summer.
However, Real are refusing to give up on the 23-year-old with the Spanish giants making a forward their priority when the transfer window swings back into action in the summer.
Real are hoping to tempt City into doing business for Aguero by offering fellow Argentine Higuain as part of any deal.
City boss Roberto Mancini is thought to be an admirer of Higuain, but he would be loath to lose Aguero following his success this season and doubts surrounding the futures of Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko at City.
Aguero last month rejected rumours linking him with a move to the Bernabeu, but it seems Real are ready to continue their pursuit of the player this summer.
