Sergio Aguero admits he “would love” to have Lionel Messi at Manchester City, and while he believes money would not be a problem, he admits any deal would be “quite complicated”.
Messi has been strongly linked with a potential move away from boyhood club Barcelona following the €222m exit of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in the mid-year transfer period.
Manchester City have since been tipped with preparing a €400m bid for the Argentina international in January, and Aguero admits he would be thrilled to have his compatriot at the Etihad Stadium.
Aguero told broadcaster TyC Sport: "The money isn't a problem here, but I think Messi, like Ronaldo, is a player who is a symbol of their club and it's difficult for them to leave.
“I would love to have Leo on my team, but that seems quite complicated.”
