Aguero Explains Why City Signing Messi Would Be Difficult

The 29-year-old Argentine was in involved in the accident in Amsterdam on his day off last month when he had been attending a music concert, and had initially been ruled out for a month.

Guardiola's team, who host Stoke City on Saturday, rounded off their clean sweep in September with a hard fought 1-0 victory at defending champions Chelsea to take their total to 17 goals scored with none conceded during the month.

"When I got to the hospital, I asked the doctor if I could play for City on the Saturday [against Chelsea]".

Forward Sergio Aguero has explained why he thinks it would not be easy for Manchester City to sign Lionel Messi from FC Barcelona. "I trained normally, but without the group".

Aguero, who plays with the 30-year-old in the Argentina setup, believes luring his worldwide colleague to City would be tough as he is more than just another player at Barca.

"I was lucky that I know the agent of Maluma [a Colombian singer], he invited me and I went". I had nearly two days off and going to the airport was when I had that accident.

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