Maradona tells Spanish press: "Aguero made a mistake" signing for Manchester City and striker must go to Real Madrid
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Diego Maradona expressed his opinion that his son-in-law, Sergio Agüero, made a mistake by signing for Manchester City and that the striker should play for Real Madrid as rumours of a summer transfer grow. According to the paper, the Spanish team has already made an offer for the City striker and Maradona believes that the best thing for the 23-year-old is to be transferred to the white team in Spain's capital.
“Kun has to play in Real Madrid,” stated the Argentinian after talking to ‘Radio La Red’.
“Playing in Real Madrid would be his definitive take-off. Despite the fact he is flying right now with (Manchester) City, the best thing for him would have been to be signed by Real Madrid. He made a mistake.” he added.
The current Al Wasl coach emphasized the benefits for Real Madrid if Agüero played in the team, and especially for Cristiano Ronaldo, who could "reach sixty and something goals because Kun would take all the defense with him”.
In any case, Maradona admits the difficulty of the transfer since “now he is breaking in and it won’t be easy to take him from City. Manchester (City) will have to keep hold of him because Mancini has Kun very much in mind for his future plans.”
Earlier reports in the English press on Tuesday hinted at a possible transfer this summer for Kun as Real boss Mourinho plans an audacious swap deal with fellow Argentine hitman Gonzalo Higuain, with Aguero reportedly top of the Portuguese manager's wishlist.
A transfer out of Manchester will also be made all the more likely if Aguero fails to win any silverware this season. City have been knocked out of all cup competitions this campaign and remain off the pace in the Premier League as they currently sit 5 points adrift of Manchester United at the top of the table.
