Aguero: Messi unlikely to sign with City

Sergio Aguero has admitted that Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi is highly unlikely to sign with Manchester City. 

City have been linked with Messi for a lengthy period of time, but there is no indication that the 28-year-old will leave Barcelona once his current contract expires in 2018. 

While Aguero would welcome Messi with open arms if he were to join City and ply his trade in the Premier League, the Argentina international doesn’t believe that his compatriot will bid Camp Nou adieu any time soon as he has built a legacy there and has played for the club from a very young age. 

"It's very difficult for Leo to leave Barcelona, because he's played there since he was very young and it's not easy for him to think about another team," Aguero told Omnisport. "So no… hopefully he can be here at City obviously, but of course it's always the player's decision and I think he's very comfortable and very calm in Barcelona."
