Sergio Aguero would love to play with pal Messi at City.
Manchester City’s Aguero and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi are known to be good friends.
Despite many attempts from City to lure Messi to Manchester, the little Argentinian is still in Barcelona.
This could be the best chance yet for City as Lionel Messi have still not sign a contract extension although have been agreed in June.
Speaking after Argentina successfully qualified for the World Cup yesterday, “I would love to play with Messi at City but it would be very difficult.” he said.
He also added “It is not about the money but the importance of Messi to Barcelona is similar with Ronaldo to Real Madrid. It will be very difficult.”
Aguero missed out on the last two Argentina qualification matc due to an injury after met with an accident two weeks ago in Amsterdam.
He suffered a broken ribs and are reported to be missed 4-6 weeks.
But yesterday, he shocked the media after turning up in training.
Speaking of his comeback, “I am not sure if I am ready for this weekend match”
“I am training alone right now and I will have to wait to train with the team tomorrow to see if I am still in pain”
Manchester City title hunt is very important this season as their rival United are on same points on top of the table.
Aguero has been a key figure by scoring 7 goals in 8 appearances in all competitions for the club.
Although Pep Guardiola do not make the forward his favourite choice especially last season where he comes off the bench most of time, this season he is choose to play together with Gabriel Jesus.
The partnership between the two forwards have been great so far and could push City to a greater height this season.
