Barcelona Presidential Candidate's Plan To Convince Lionel Messi To Stay At The Club

Barcelona Presidential Candidate's Plan To Convince Lionel Messi To Stay At The Club

One of Barcelona's presidential candidates plans to convince Lionel Messi to stay put by signing Sergio Aguero.

Aguero and Messi have been long-time friends ever since they linked up in the Argentina youth sides and they have regularly been roommates when on international duty.

But while it looked possible that Messi would be joining his friend in Manchester when he handed in a transfer request, Diario Gol are talking about Aguero returning to La Liga and playing with Messi at the Nou Camp.

It's said that Joan Laporta, who is in the running to become Barca president again, believes signing Messi's best mate will go a long way towards ensuring he does not leave Catalonia.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner is out of contract in the summer and now free to speak to foreign clubs regarding a move.

Aguero is also nearing free agency, with the Manchester City talisman struggling with injury problems of late and the club a little reluctant to offer the 32-year-old a contract extension as a result.
