Sergio Aguero: playing alongside Lionel Messi at Manchester City would be beautiful

Premier League heavyweights Manchester City set the pace for the new year last weekend, securing a hard-fought win over Watford with the winning goal coming courtesy of Argentine talisman Sergio Aguero.

The 27-year-old has proved a mainstay since his move from Atletico Madrid and now the striker dreams of playing alongside countryman Lionel Messi in City colours.

With speculation growing over the possibility of Pep Guardiola taking over as manager at the Etihad, there is a degree of belief that the Spaniard's move could play an intrustmental part in signing the Barcelona forward.

According to Goal, Aguero said: "If he [Messi] wants to come here, let him come!”

"You always like to play with the best players, but to be playing alongside the best in the world is very emotional and very beautiful, no?

The Argentine accepted, though, that such a move is unlikely.

"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.

"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."

Aguero himself disclosed earlier in the season that he would not be renewing his contract with City and hopes of returning to boyhood club Independiente, where he would also like to play alongside his international teammate.

City are among the few clubs in world football who have the financial muscle to lure the likes of Messi, but financial incentive alone wouldn't convince the 28-year-old of a move away from the Camp Nou.
