Lionel Messi: Sergio Aguero makes startling Barcelona transfer claim

Sergio Aguero has said he found it hard to adapt to Pep Guardiola's demands when the former Barcelona coach first arrived at Manchester City.

Aguero was asked in an interview with TyC Sports about the possibility of linking up with close friend and compatriot Lionel Messi at club level (h/t Marca's Charly Siffredi).

Guardiola wanted more work from the striker and Aguero said he had a tough time, particularly when he lost his place to Gabriel Jesus. Even for a matter of age, both mine and his.

But Aguero said: "I think it's impossible". Aguero finished an injury-curtailed campaign with 30 goals in all competitions and back in position as Guardiola's first-choice striker.

Earlier in May, Radio Marca reported Aguero's former team Atletico Madrid had made contact with him regarding a move this summer (h/t Marca's Adrian Gomez).

Aguero is tied to the Etihad until 2020 after signing a contract extension last season.

"He is going to stay at Barcelona, where he's playing well, and I'll do so at City".

Aguero is set to be in the Argentina World Cup squad after recovering from a knee problem, having had surgery following City's Champions League exit to Liverpool.

Starsport understands Aguero has held talks with City boss Pep Guardiola and pledged his immediate future to the Premier League champions.

And he admits that he feels a lot better, adding: "If I did not get the procedure done, I would've missed the World Cup. I've always had problems but now I feel different, I can bend it and it's a relief".

"After five years, my knee is like knew".
