Aguero and Messi are Argentina international teammates and close friends and despite the latter’s name being synonymous with the Catalans, the current City ace says he will try and get the four-time Ballon d’Or winner to join him at the Etihad Stadium.

“I will try to get Leo Messi to sign for Manchester City,” the 26-year-old was quoted by Mundo Deportivo

“It will be difficult, but it would be good if the best players were in the Premier League .”

Messi has been increasingly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp in recent times, with Barca’s powers seemingly on the wane and the forward being played out of position by new head coach Luis Enrqiue.

With Neymar and Luis Suarez also vying for a place in attack Enrique has opted to push the 27-year-old out to a wider role, which although was a position the Argentinian occupied in his youth he has been playing more centrally for some time now.

Chelsea had been linked to the transfer of Messi, but as ESPN reports Blues manager Jose Mourinho has openly admitted that those rumours are not true.
