Sergio Aguero: 'Many players go overseas on days off'

Manchester City have the financial power to sign Lionel Messi, but it would be another matter to try and convince him to leave Barcelona, says Sergio Aguero. A 0-0 draw with Peru left them in jeopardy of missing out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but Lionel Messi fired them to a 3-1 win over Ecuador in the final game to secure qualification.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has claimed several times that Messi's renewal has already been actioned and just needs to be announced, but the clock keeps ticking and that confirmation is yet to be made.

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

He said, "I don't believe so", he told TyC Sports.

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 was involved in a road accident in late September after attending a concert in Amsterdam as his taxi hit a pillar on its way to the airport.

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 added: "When a player has a free day at Manchester City, most of the players go to London, others to Italy, some to Spain". I'm lucky to know Maluma's agent and he invited me to his concert, which I went to.

"Then one thinks, 'Why did he go there?'But it's hard to imagine that something could happen".

On his comeback, Aguero continued: "I do not know if I'm going to play Saturday. Tomorrow I will get into the group to see how I feel".
