Aguero: I will try convince Messi to move to Man City

The Barcelona star has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou, and his fellow Argentina international would love him to join him in England at the Premier League champions

SERGIO AGUERO HAS revealed he will try and convince compatriot Lionel Messi to move to the Premier League.

The Barcelona star and four-time Ballon d’Or winner has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou after he claimed he did not know what the future had in store for him.

Messi has previously stated that he would love to retire at the Liga club, but his recent comments have since thrown that into doubt

Aguero’s club Manchester City have been among those linked with a possible move for 27-year-old, with Goal revealing that the Premier League champions went on a charm offensive when they hosted the Argentina national side in November.

And Aguero himself admitted he would love for his fellow countryman to move to the Premier League, though he realises it will be difficult to persuade him.

“It’s a tough ask. I’ll try and convince him,” he said after winning the Football Supporters’ Federation Player of the Year award.
