Atletico striker Sergio Aguero met with officials at the Vicente Calderon on Monday, reportedly to discuss his future at the club.

The Rojiblanco idol was accompanied by his father and his agents, sounding the alarm amongst the Colchonero faithful.

José Antonio “Chiqui” Lavado, author of “El Año Que Volvimos”, tweeted that, according to his reliable sources inside the Calderón, Kun told Atlético he would like to leave, and that he has a firm offer on the table from Real Madrid.

Spanish radio network Onda Cero meanwhile, claims that Real Madrid will make Kun’s signing official on Saturday.

Several sources in the Spanish media are reporting that Aguero left the stadium visibly angry after the meeting. Many are speculating that general director Gil Marín is holding Agüero to his buy-out clause.

Sales tax, combined with income tax, could drive his €45m buy-out clause up to roughly €80m, according to our understanding of the subject. Obviously nearly half of that would go to the taxman.

According to COPE, last week Gil Marín threatened Kun by telling the 22-year-old he would report him for tax fraud if he left to join los Blancos.

UPDATE: MARCA now report that Kun informed Atleti officials he may be going to Manchester City, not Real Madrid, as many sources claimed earlier. The paper also reports that neither club president Enrique Cerezo nor Gil Marín were present for the meeting.

    This is going to get unfortunate as time progresses.

    Kun is gone but we need to get ALL the money for him, because we will not get a player as good as he was, so next best is as much money as we can get, specially if he goes to another Spanish team, or one of the top European teams. They want him they have to pay full price.

    In the long run this might be good for us.

    I don´t get it. I just don´t get it.
    I´m sorry but for the moment I refuse to believe this all.
    I can understand that one day Agüero will want to leave the club for guaranteed Champions League football in order to compete with the best.
    But he always said that he is feeling fine with Atléti and that he wants to see out his contract…

    Never ever in a lifetime will he join Real Madrid!
