Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is prepared to make a summer raid on Atletico Madrid to sign brothers Lucas and Theo Hernandez.

The duo are said to be highly-rated by the Spanish giants with Lucas having made himself a regular under Diego Simeone this season.

According to The Sun, the Citizens have been watching the pair for a while, and Pep is prepared to offer £40m or Sergio Aguero in exchange for the Atleti graduates.

"There was interest last summer. Pep has sent his best man to have a closer look at them. There is a feeling that Atletico reckon they could use this as leverage should Kun decide to leave at the end of the season." a source close to City told The Sun.

Lucas, who is a centre-half by trade, has turned out 17 times for the Capital outfit this season. Meanwhile, brother Theo is a left-sided defender, and he is currently on loan with Copa del Rey finalists Alaves.
