Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero says that signing Lionel Messi is hard because the Barcelona superstar is a "symbol" of the Catalan giants.
"The money isn't a problem here [at City]", Aguero told Argentine channel TyC Sports.
Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has opened up about his miracle escape from a auto crash in Amsterdam on September 29.
Because of the injury, the Argentina global was unable to feature in his nation's crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador.
The 29-year-old was injured in a vehicle crash in Amsterdam last month and missed City's 1-0 win over champions Chelsea and both of Argentina's 2018 World Cup qualifiers but returned to light training for the league leaders earlier this week.
"When I got to the hospital, I asked the doctor if I could play for City on the Saturday [against Chelsea]".
When looking back on the day of his accident, Aguero said: "When a player has a free day at Manchester City, most of the players go to London, others to Italy, some to Spain".
"But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it's hard for them to leave. Today I trained normally, but without the group". I had nearly two days off and going to the airport was when I had that accident.
