Sergio Aguero coy on Manchester City return date

12 October 2017

Sergio Aguero admits he "would love" to have Lionel Messi at Manchester City, and while he believes money would not be a problem, he admits any deal would be "quite complicated". Messi is seemingly yet to sign a proposed new deal and his current one is set to expire at the end of the season.

In spite of the delay, Aguero does not think that there is much hope of Messi joining him at City, even if money is not an issue for the Premier League side.

"I would love to [see Messi join] - who wouldn't love to have Leo in his team?"

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's present contract situation at the Nou Camp is uncertain, but Aguero said: "City would have no money problems in regards to signing Messi, but he is a symbol of Barcelona and it would be very hard for him to leave".

The 29-year-old, though, has appeared to indicate he could be in selection content for the match against Stoke City on Saturday, while he also hit back at those criticising him for going to Amsterdam on his days off.

However, the striker concedes it could be hard trying to lure the Barcelona "symbol" from Catalonia, telling TyC Sport: "The money isn't a problem here".

Aguero confirmed that he had broken his ribs following the accident and was expected to face an extended spell on the sidelines, with some suggesting he could miss up to six weeks, but resumed light training this week and came through unscathed. I'm lucky to know Maluma's agent and he invited me to his concert, which I went to. I had nearly two days off and going to the airport was when I had that accident.

"Then one thinks 'why did I [go]', but it's hard to imagine that something like that could happen".

"When I got to the hospital I asked the doctor if I could play for City on the Saturday [against Stoke]".
