Lionel Messi urges new Barcelona boss to sign Sergio Aguero

Lionel Messi has urged new Barcelona boss Quique Setien to make a bid for Sergio Aguero.

Messi was summoned for a one-on-one meeting with Setien after the former Betis coach put his squad through their paces following the decision to sack Ernesto Valverde last week.

And according to reports in Spain, the best player in the world told his new boss that Manchester City talisman Aguero is the perfect player to replace injured Luis Suarez.

Suarez will be sidelined for at least four months but so far Barca have NOT followed up on Messi’s advice to address the crisis. There has been no approach made to the Etihad about Aguero.

It is almost unthinkable that City would sell their record goalscorer even if an offer was made.

But it is a measure of how highly the 31-year-old is rated by Messi that the Argentine wants to team up with his international foil at the Nou Camp.

Aguero has scored 249 goals for City since joining the club from Atletico Madrid in 2011. His hat-trick in the 6-1 romp at Aston Villa last Sunday was his 12th in the Premier League – another record. Aguero’s contract at the Etihad expires in the summer of 2021.
