Maradona talks up Aguero Real move

Diego Maradona has again called for Sergio Aguero to join Real Madrid as he would be a much better foil for Cristiano Ronaldo than current strike partners Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema.

Aguero has reportedly long been a target of Madrid president Florentino Perez, and has regularly told reporters in Spain that he would consider playing at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu at some point in his career.

Maradona is continuing to push for the move, even though El Kun reportedly split with El Diego's youngest daughter Giannina in January. Maradona told Monday’s Marca that Aguero’s movement would be perfect to create more spaces for Ronaldo to thrive in, however, he admitted that the player remained happy at Manchester City.

"El Kun would be the solution for Madrid's future, a perfect complement for Ronaldo,” Maradona said. “Sergio is pure movement, while Benzema and Higuain are two impressive tanks who can pull around the defence for you, but who clash with CR7 (Ronaldo). One of these days Cristiano is going to carry off one of those two. Sometimes I think they are going to need to put in traffic-lights to organise the traffic between them. Kun would create spaces for Ronaldo. It would be spectacular. I continue to see him at Madrid, although the truth is at the moment he is very happy at City, very happy with the club. Having said that, living in Manchester is like living in a freezer."

Maradona, who sat alongside Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes in the executive seats at the Bernabeu during Madrid’s 2-1 win over Barcelona on Saturday, said he still believed Lionel Messi was the world’s best player, despite Ronaldo outshining him recently.

"Messi cannot save Barca in every game,” he said. “His name is Lionel, not Salvador (saviour). People need to get that into their heads. I do not believe just because of two games you can kill Leo. People might think Ronaldo is better now, but I say that he has always been a phenomenon, an animal. But my point is you cannot throw the blame at Leo because two games are lost."

The chance to manage his former Argentina charge at Barcelona was a dream, albeit an unlikely one, said Maradona, who is currently employed as a ‘sporting ambassador’ for Dubai.

"On Saturday, when I saw [Javier] Mascherano and Messi in the dressing-room, my heart jumped,” he said. “My dream, and I have the right to have it, is to coach Leo at Barca some day. I congratulated him on his son, although I had already called him on the phone. Trying to speak on the phone with Messi is like trying to call [Barack] Obama. Almost impossible. It’s incredible."
