Getting Lionel Messi To Manchester City Will Be 'Complicated' - Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero admits Lionel Messi to Manchester City would be 'quite complicated' but adds he'd 'love' Barcelona star

During the interview, Aguero was also asked about the possibility of being joined at City by countryman Lionel Messi.

Messi is yet to commit his future to the Catalan club, but president Josep Maria Bartomeu has insisted the forward will sign a new deal in the coming weeks.

Messi has been strongly linked with a potential move away from boyhood club Barcelona following the €222m exit of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in the mid-year transfer period.

Sources close to City admit that they will "never" give up on Messi and will always offer him a route out of Catalonia, if he wants it.

Aguero told TyC Sports: "Let's be honest, money is not an issue here". Aguero's premature return is very positive news for Pep Guardiola, particularly as Gabriel Jesus is only expected to return from global duty on Thursday (12 October). But Leo, just like other players like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are symbols of their clubs and it's hard to leave not just to City but to other clubs that also have the money.

Aguero's injuries forced him to miss Argentina's crucial final World Cup qualifiers but Messi rescued a troubled campaign to secure a place in Russian Federation next summer with a stunning hat-trick against Ecuador.

"I would love to have Leo on my team, but that seems quite complicated".

We spoke to Unibet about the prospect of Messi linking up with Guardiola again, and they have a market that rates the chances of the two working together at City at 7/2.
