Argentina and Manchester City legend, Sergio Aguero has opened up on his move to Barcelona - revealing that  he’s hoping to line up alongside his good friend Lionel Messi next season.

Messi's future at the Nou Camp has been a source of speculation throughout the 2020/21 season, considering that he handed in a transfer request and is out of contract come June of this year. Aguero though has reiterated that he wants to play with Messi.

"Of course I hope to play with Messi. What happens with Leo is a decision that he and the club will make. It is a pride to play with him. I’ve played with him in the national team. If he stays here, which I think he will, we will try to give our best for the club," he said as quoted by Barca Blaugranes.

I"’ve spoken with Messi, I speak with him every day. But I can’t tell you what we talk about. The last message was that he congratulated me, but we continued to talk about other things, which I can’t share.”

Aguero has signed for Barcelona after spending a decade at Manchester City on a free transfer, leaving the Etihad as their all-time record goalscorer.
