Sergio Aguero has debunked claims that he signed for Barcelona because of Lionel Messi.
The Argentines have been teammates since U-20 level and after the departure of Messi to PSG, reports from certain outlets suggested that Aguero could leave Barcelona sooner than expected because of his bond with Messi.
The former Manchester City striker however dismissed this in an interview with RAC1 stating:
“I didn’t understand why that was said,”
“Messi hadn’t signed when I signed. An invented clause was spoken about, but there was nothing. Then I got injured”
“The last MRI looked good, but it’s best to see how things progress in the coming weeks.”
“I’m progressing well and next week I think I’ll work a bit on the pitch,” Aguero said.
“There’s no timeframe for when I’ll return, but I’m progressing well and it will be shorter than predicted.
