Aguero to fly in and seal City deal

Sergio Aguero is set to fly into Manchester Airport on Wednesday to finalise a transfer that is set to cost Manchester City £38 million.

• De Jong warns Balotelli

According to widespread reports, an impasse in the potential deal was broken when City's Abu Dhabian owner Khaldoon al-Mubarak became personally involved in negotiations with Atletico Madrid.

With Carlos Tevez unsettled to the point of again asking to leave Eastlands - a deal with Corinthians collapsed last week - City require further striking talent. Craig Bellamy, Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz are surplus to requirements while Mario Balotelli's weekend fall-out with boss Roberto Mancini perhaps crystallised the need for an additional striker.

Tevez is for sale at £40 million, which would mean that Aguero, believed to be expecting less expensive but hardly low wages, will likely replace his Argentine compatriot if a buyer can be found for last season's captain.

City's previous record signing was Brazilian Robinho, for whom £32 million was paid for a player who never settled at Eastlands. Aguero's pricetag would make him the second-most expensive signing in Premier League history after Fernando Torres' £50 million January move to Chelsea, the club Aguero was once heavily linked to.

Their previous deals this summer saw them land Gael Clichy from Arsenal and Stefan Savic from Partizan Belgrade to replenish a squad already brimming with expensive talent.
