Man City ace Aguero break silence over Amsterdam accident

Speculation about the future of Messi has been rife for several months now after the Argentinian superstar - who scored a hat-trick to book his country's World Cup place on Wednesday - entered the final year of his contract at Camp Nou.

He said: "Manchester City would have no money problems in regards to signing Messi but he is a symbol of Barcelona and it would be very hard for him to leave".

"But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it's hard for them to leave".

"I would love to [see Messi join] - who wouldn't love to have Leo in his team?"

Messi's heroics against Ecuador on Tuesday steered the two-time World Cup champions to Russian Federation 2018.

Russia May Demand US Cut Diplomatic Staff
Earlier Russia's envoy to Washington Anatoly Antonov said he had sent a "decisive protest" to the U.S. over the removed flags. The demand followed a vote to tighten sanctions on Russian Federation .

Aguero's injuries were expected to keep him out of action for between two and four weeks but the 29-year-old realises the accident could have left him in a much worse condition.

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 hard for them to leave". He said, "I don't believe so".

Aguero is 6/1 third favourite with Sky Bet behind Harry Kane (7/4) and Romelu Lukaku (5/2) to be the Premier League's top scorer this season.

The 29-year-old suffered a broken rib after being involved in a vehicle crash during a day off in Amsterdam last month, with the initial reports suggesting that he could be out of action for up to six weeks.

Man City return to action this Saturday with a Premier League home game against Stoke City.
