Lionel Messi

The Argentine forward spent a decade at Man City, scoring 260 goals in 390 appearances to become the club’s all-time top scorer.

Aguero will hope to have more success in Barcelona alongside his international teammate, Messi, although the all-time great is still linked to a move away from Camp Nou.

Messi, 33, came close to leaving Barcelona last summer and has yet to sign a contract extension, with his current contract expiring at the end of June.

‘Of course, I hope to play with Lionel,’ Aguero said after being unveiled by Barcelona on Monday evening. ‘I know him so well, we’re good friends.

‘What happens with Leo is a decision that he and the club will make. It is a pride to play with him. I’ve played with him in the national team.

‘If he stays here, which I think he will, we will try to give our best for the club. I’ve spoken with Messi, I speak with him every day.

‘But I can’t tell you what we talk about. The last message was that he congratulated me, but we continued to talk about other things, which I can’t share.’

‘For me, Barca has always been the best team in the world and Leo [Messi] is also there.

‘I told [president Joan] Laporta before that as a boy I said: “One day they will surely notice me.” And here I am. I didn’t imagine it, but anyone runs to sign for Barca.

‘When Barcelona asked about me, I didn’t even hesitate. I told my agent that I didn’t want him to talk to another team, only Barca.

‘It was an immense joy when they contacted my agent. I’ve been interested since I was 14 years old.’
