Aguero is keen for Messi to join him at Manchester City.

Sergio Aguero admits trying to convince Lionel Messi to join Manchester City

Published Add your comment

Sergio Aguero has been trying to persuade fellow Argentine Lionel Messi to sign for Manchester City by telling him how great the city is.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has previously been linked with a move to the Etihad, and Aguero has admitted that he’s attempted to convince the Barcelona star that the North West is a great place to play football.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men are yet to make a high-profile signing during the January transfer window and Aguero has tried selling Messi the ‘Manchester dream.’

“He already knows there’s no beach!” the striker told SkySports.

“As I said to him, at the end of the day we spend the majority of our time inside at home. We play every three days so we just eat, rest between games - so the weather is not really that important.

“So I told him that Manchester is ideal as a city because you stay at home all day, you play every three days, we can eat, we can meet up, drink Mate [a traditional South American drink] and play football together.”

However, it appears that Aguero’s efforts could all be vain as his compatriot has seemingly ruled out a transfer to another European team if he is to ever leave the Nou Camp.


Aguero’s side are entering a crucial period of the season with the Citizens sitting just one point behind joint league leaders Arsenal and Leicester. They are also in the last-16 of the Champions League, which resumes next month where they face Dynamo Kyiv.

They also face Aston Villa in the FA Cup fourth round later this month whilst they’re also in the Capital One Cup semi-final, trailing Everton 2-1 after the first-leg.
