United in talks to sign Sergio Aguero

Atletico Madrid have slapped a £55m price tag on Argentina striker Sergio Aguero following reported interest in the 21-year-old from Manchester United.

The Daily Mail claims that Sir Alex Ferguson has been in contact with Aguero's management as he attempts to replace Carlos Tevez and Cristiano Ronaldo and that the Atletico striker is interested in a possible move to Old Trafford.

United will be looking to pay a lot less than the La Liga club's asking price, but Atletico know that the Premier League champions have the £80m that they earned from the C-Ron deal and want the biggest fee possible for one of their prize assets.

Aguero has scored a combined total of 44 goals in the last two seasons and would provide United some well needed firepower following Ronaldo's move to Real Madrid.
