Sergio Aguero celebrates his goal for Man City against Viktoria Plzen.AssociatedSergio Aguero has enjoyed a sparking start to this season at Man City.

Real Madrid have identified their next star signing, and have put the wheels in motion to sign him. Sergio Aguero will reportedly be the subject of a 48 million pound bid from Los Blancos.

During a meeting with Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, Real president Florentino Perez has floated the notion the La Liga giants are eager to bring Aguero back to Spain. The Argentina international moved to the Premier League from Atletico Madrid, and is now considered the best option to boost Real's already star-studded attacking stocks.

The Sun reports Mansour and Perez discussed Aguero's future at length, but the future of goalkeeper Iker Casillas was not of importance, despite reports to the contrary.

Chelsea's Ashley Cole may end his career in the United States, according to the Daily Mirror. It is said the England international is considering a move to join Thierry Henry and Tim Cahill at New York Red Bulls, and indeed the MLS club lead the race for his signature. The 33-year-old is out of contract next summer, and the Red Bulls believe he is the perfect fit to join their roster.

Giuseppe Rossi's future is also a hot topic in the press, with the Daily Mirror reporting Tottenham are keen on the Fiorentina forward. Spurs need to find an answer to their goalscoring woes and Rossi could fit the bill, if his Serie A employers agree to a 30 million pound offer in January.

Still at White Hart Lane, reports state Fabio Capello is the top candidate to replace Andre Villas-Boas if the current Tottenham manager is relieved of his duties. The Daily Mail claims the former England boss is being lined up to fill the void as pressure mounts on Villas-Boas to turn around the clubs fortunes. It is believed the Portuguese tactician has been given up to one month to show he is the man to lead Spurs.
