I would 'love' Lionel Messi to join Manchester City - Sergio Aguero

Aguero told broadcaster TyC Sport: "The money isn't a problem here, but I think Messi, like Ronaldo, is a player who is a symbol of their club and it's hard for them to leave".

As Messi's contract at Camp Nou expires next summer, the 30-year-old is free to hold discussions with clubs outside of Spain from January 1.

Messi spent midweek helping Argentina seal their place at the 2018 World Cup finals, and his fellow countryman and close friend Sergio Aguero - has never hidden his desire to link-up with him, and he has repeated that desire this week. Aguero's premature return is very positive news for Pep Guardiola, particularly as Gabriel Jesus is only expected to return from worldwide duty on Thursday (12 October).

Sergio Aguero has admitted he could have suffered far worse than a broken rib in his recent auto crash in Amsterdam.

"But I think Messi, like (Cristiano) Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and its hard for them to leave".

"I took a moment to think and realised it's thanks to wearing a seat-belt that I'm able to talk about this at all".

Aguero was back at training this week after recovering from a broken rib suffered in the accident in Amsterdam.

"I sent a message to Messi, a normal one, as I did to everybody", Aguero said.

"I spoke to Leo and congratulated him. Today I trained normally, but without the group.Tomorrow I will get into the group to see how I feel, but at training it's not the same thing as a game, I want to see if I have pain".

"I'm not quite sure who they've done the deal with, perhaps my double", he added.
