  • Aguero Manchester City Can Afford To Buy Messi If Barcelona Are Willing To Sell

Sergio Aguero would "love" to have Lionel Messi join him at Manchester City, but accepts it would be complicated persuading a club "symbol" to leave Barcelona.

The 29-year-old suffered a broken rib after being involved in a auto crash during a day off in Amsterdam last month, with the initial reports suggesting that he could be out of action for up to six weeks.

He was believed to be frozen out by Guardiola and possibly sold during the summer, with the manager favouring Brazilian talent Gabriel Jesus.

Because of the injury, the Argentina worldwide was unable to feature in his nation's crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador.

Following criticism for his decision to go to Amsterdam in the days building up to City's important fixture against Chelsea, Aguero has defended his actions saying players often go overseas on their days off.

As things stand, he could even have a chance of returning to action in tomorrow's Premier League clash against Stoke at the Etihad Stadium. "Today I trained normally, but without the group".

"But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it's hard for them to leave".

"When a player has a free day at Manchester City, most of the players go to London, others to Italy, some to Spain", he said.

The 29-year-old traveled to the Netherlands on a day off but was involved in an accident as a passenger. Back to training. I am ready!
