Real Madrid look likely to sign a top attacker in the foreseeable future with their La Liga campaign already a shambles.

Los Blancos pipped Barcelona to the prize last term but, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema misfiring, have been unable to challenge the Catalan giants for the trophy this time around.

And Spanish website Don Balon say Real Madrid are planning a spending spree in January, with Aguero among their top targets.

The Argentina international has been in fine form this season, scoring nine goals to fire Pep Guardiola’s men to the summit.

But, with Gabriel Jesus also blossoming at the Etihad Stadium, he is no longer guaranteed to start week in, week out.
