FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has asked the La Liga champions to buy Manchester City front man Sergio Aguero for next season as part of the negotiations that are currently taking place to extend the forward’s contract at Camp Nou, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The little Argentina international’s current deal with the Catalan giants runs until June 2018, however, the two parties have been in discussions now for some months about extending that contract.

However, as part of those talks it is now understood that Messi has requested that Barca make a move for City’s prolific striker and his compatriot Aguero when the summer transfer window reopens for business later this summer.

Aguero, 25, has been also heavily linked of late with making a switch to Barcelona’s fierce rivals Real Madrid next season after yet another impressive campaign in front of goal by the pint-sized attacker.

In fact, despite a succession of niggling muscle-related injuries that have badly affected his campaign, Aguero has still managed to hit the back of the net on 17 occasions in just 22 Premier League outings for City.
