Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero would love to have his national team-mate Lionel Messi on his side, but accepts it would be quite complicated.
Barcelona Hero Messi is on course to become a free agent at the end of the season. Despite The Catalans claimed several times that the new contract is all done, but that is yet to formalised.
The Argentine Forward Aguero said that money will not be an issue in deciding if Messi will join the Etihad club.
“The money isn’t a problem here,” Aguero told TyC Sport. “But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it’s difficult for them to leave.
“I would love to have Leo on my team, but that seems quite complicated.”
Aguero spoke to Messi after his hat trick for national side securing qualification for the World Cup Russia 2018.
Aguero’s rib injury which he suffered in a car crash in Amsterdam which kept him out of Argentina’s final two World Cup qualifiers .
“I watched the game with my mother,” he said. “I was very nervous but I screamed for joy. I’m delighted.
“I spoke to Leo and congratulated him. We are a group and we speak a lot, we all wish the best to everyone. I thanked him for what he is doing for the World Cup.”
Aguero returned to training on Wednesday which for City team-mates and for Cityzens was much sooner than expected. And could potentially be back for the Premier League clash with Stoke City on Saturday.
“I don’t know yet. I trained alone without the ball,” he said. “On Thursday I will train with the group and see if I’m comfortable.
“It depends how I feel, it’s not the same training as playing a football game. I want to be certain and not have pain. I don’t want to play and then have a knock that keeps me out for another week.”
