Manchester City bosses are eager to secure Sergio Agüero a new contract in the coming months.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi appears to have come closer to a sensational transfer to City amid reports that manager Pep Guardiola is ready for his stint at Etihad.
El Chiringuito says Messi would consider moving to City with two conditions; that both Guardiola and Agüero remain in the Etihad.
Messi played with Guardiola for five seasons in Barcelona, where the pair won the League three times and the Champions League twice.
The Argentine is also good friends with his international teammate Agüero, who would help him settle in the Manchester area. Agüero’s current deal expires in June.
Given that Guardiola seems ready to stay at City, it would be attractive to Messi, who tried to leave Barcelona in the summer, and could influence his decision at the end of the season.
