However, Milan canceled its formal move considering City and Guardiola failed to bring the main target, Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez.

AC Milan are reportedly ready to make an £80million swoop for Sergio Aguero in the January transfer window.

City agreed a £60m deadline day deal for Sanchez, but were unable to complete the transfer after Arsenal were unable to land a replacement for the Chilean.

According to The Sun, City still intend to sign the Chile worldwide in the New Year and are hopeful of nabbing him from their Premier League rivals as early as January in a cut-price £25m move.


Manchester City are planning a further £20m bid for Alexis Sanchez in January.

Rumours have persisted since Guardiola took over City 16 months ago that he and Aguero have a strained relationship.

City have made light of that blow during the opening weeks of the season, dropping just two points in their opening seven league games and making a 100% start to their European campaign. Guardiola has managed to fit them into the same side this season in a 3-5-2 formation. Guardiola's move will be the trigger for Milan to approach Aguero.

And their bid will test whether Guardiola really does see a long-term future for the striker who stands one goal off becoming the club's joint record goalscorer.
