Barcelona’s new signing Sergio Aguero hopes to play alongside his close friend and fellow Argentine Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou next season. Messi’s current contract with Barcelona expires next month, and he has yet to sign an extension with the Catalan giants.
Sergio Aguero signed a two-year contract with Barcelona earlier this week after his contract with Manchester City expired.
The Argentine hopes to play alongside his close friend Lionel Messi at Barcelona next season. Aguero revealed that he is still not sure whether Messi will be his teammate at Barcelona next season because the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has not yet signed an extension to his contract with the club.
“Let’s hope we play together, what happens with Leo is down to the decisions he makes with the club. Obviously it will be a pleasure to play together. Barcelona at Camp Nou “the best we have for the club as it has always done”.
The 32-year-old spent ten years at Manchester City, during which he helped the club win five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, and six cups.
Aguero is Manchester City’s all-time top scorer, with 260 goals in 390 appearances for the club.
Argentina last season with Manchester City was injured. He managed only 20 matches for the club in all competitions, scoring six goals.
Therefore, Manchester City decided not to offer to extend his contract, which allowed him to become a free agent this summer.
Lionel Messi is likely to stay at Barcelona
Despite his frustration with leaving Barcelona last summer, it seems likely that Lionel Messi will sign an extension of his contract with the club in the coming weeks. Messi is said to be close to the new president, Joan Laporta.
Lionel Messi has also reportedly developed a close relationship with current Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman and believes the Dutchman is leading the club in the right direction.
