Sergio Aguero reveals he is still attempting to lure Barcelona maestro to Manchester City

first_img Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed the extent of his attempts to lure Barcelona maestro and close friend Lionel Messi to Manchester.Messi – who claimed an unprecedented fifth Ballon d’Or award last week – has been linked with a lucrative and ambitious move to both Manchester clubs and Chelsea in previous years.Aguero and Messi are international team-mates with Argentina and have close family ties and, while the prospect of the latter leaving Barcelona is unlikely, Aguero isn’t giving up.He said: “He already knows there’s no beach! I said to him, at the end of the day we spend most of our time at home.“We play every three days and just eat and rest between games – so the weather is not really that important.“So I told him Manchester is ideal as a city because you stay home, you play every three days, we can eat and play football together.”Aguero has missed large chunks of this season through injury after sustaining a problem on international duty, but admits he is now learning not to rush any recovery process in a bid to stay fit.“Right now I feel fit and well,” he added.“With the last injury I picked up on international duty I carried on playing when I should have come off.“That could have been avoided but you always want to play, especially for your country.“Argentina really needed to win, so I said to myself ‘I’ve got to play’.“Now I feel like I’m getting up to full fitness for games and missing as few as possible, that’s the most important thing.” 1last_img read more
