Barcelona are doing their best to prevent Messi from leaving and the latest move suggests another pleasant transfer may be on the way.
Lionel Messi sent positive vibes after his last interview with La Sexta (AS) as mentioned by the joy in Barcelona after the summer debacle. The 33-year-old did not specifically mention what the future holds, but he did keep the door open to stay at the club. However, he still stands firm in his stance of wanting a winning project.
Joan Laporta is likely to replace interim president Carles Tusquets later this season and even before his possible appointment, the 58-year-old is doing everything possible within his current powers to ensure the club is in a position of peace. with immediacy. That said, he now has a plan to keep Messi at the club for longer. GOL newspaper says.
He will seek to bring Sergio Agüero from Manchester City. The Argentine forward is free to negotiate with foreign clubs at present as it remains unclear whether he will continue at the Etihad Stadium. Agüero’s contract comes to an end in June, which means that he will be a free signing for the Catalan giants.
Agüero’s arrival at Camp Nou may be enough to convince Messi to stay, as the two share a warm personal relationship. Recently, La Pulga did specify how Josep Maria Bartomeu separated him from his friends at the club, allegedly pointing to the forced sales of Arturo Vidal and Luis Suárez before the start of the season.
Also from a sporting point of view, Agüero would be a glorious signing for the role of striker. Antoine Griezmann and Martin Braithwaite have not lived up to the billing this season, collectively scoring just five times in league games this season. It goes without saying that the City shooter has already played in the Spanish top flight with Atlético de Madrid.
