Aguero has no regrets over move to Barcelona despite Messi departure

Fri 10 September 2021 | 9:04

Sergio Aguero made a move to Barcelona when he hit free agency at Manchester City to play with his compatriot Lionel Messi, only for the six-time Ballon d’Or winner to make a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite these issues

, the former Manchester City man revealed he had no regrets over his decision. He told 

RAC1

"Yes, without a doubt, I would sign for Barça again. For the name of the club there are many players who are willing to give up money to come. And if the club improves financially and does well, I imagine it will reward the youngest. Not me, I already have an age. In whatever situation the club was in, it would have come safely.

"When the talk with Barça came I knew that financially I was not well, but I told my agent that I didn't care about the money, that I wanted to go to Barça. Any player wants to be at Barça. When the possibility arose, I said that without a doubt I wanted to come and fix it as it was."

"I'm very good, making a lot of progress, surely next week I will push a bit on the field. The last MRI came out pretty good. We are progressing well and perhaps a week can be shortened. Nothing hurts anymore, but it is a treacherous injury,"

 he said.

 

With Antoine Griezmann, Miralem Pjanic, and Emerson Royal

 among those who have left the club along with 

Lionel Messi

 this summer, the Blaugrana missed out on key transfer targets and could only afford to bring in Luuk de Jong on loan to bolster their forward line.

However, 

Aguero

 believes that his side could surprise the people who believe Barcelona is not strong enough.

"Because Barça is Barça they have to fight for all the titles. In the Champions League we are not favorites, but the rivals have respect for us,"

 he said.

"I have played many times against Barça and I know that at its worst it was still Barça. We are going to play with that and we can get to do things well. Many people do not expect a great performance from us in the Champions League, but to those I say, watch out for Barça."
