Agüero: “I Knew One Day Barcelona Would Notice Me,” Happy To Make Childhood Dream A Reality

The 32 year old Argentine striker, Sergio Aguero hopes to play alongside his old friend Lionel Messi at Camp Nou after he was signed on a two-year deal with the club. Aguero says he has wanted to join Barcelona since he was a child and did not hesitate even for a second to accept their offer.

The Argentina international had been linked with a move to Camp Nou for months before finally signing the contract with the club on Monday and leaving Manchester City.

At a press conference, following the unveil as a Barcelona player, Aguero said, “I am very happy, I will try to do my best for the club, help the team win important things. It is an immense joy.

“For me, Barca has always been the best team in the world and Leo (Messi) is also there.

“I told (President Joan) Laporta before that as a boy I said: ‘One day they will surely notice me.’ And here I am. I didn’t imagine it, but anyone runs to sign for Barca.”

Aguero added, “When Barca asked about me, I didn’t even hesitate. I told my agent that I didn’t want him to talk to another team, only Barca.

“It was an immense joy when they contacted my agent. I’ve been interested since I was 14 years old.”

The 32-year-old’s arrival at Camp Nou could see him play alongside his national teammate Lionel Messi. However, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner could still leave the club this summer when his contract expires.

However, the 32 year old Aguero is hoping that Messi decides to stay and is optimistic about the chances of that happening.

“We hope to play together, of course. But we have been negotiating for a long time, these are decisions that Leo will make with the club. It will be a pleasure and pride to play together.

“I have known him for a long time and I think he will stay,” Aguero said.

Aguero also said, “I speak [to Messi] every day, in the last message he congratulated me. We have known each other for a long time and for me playing now and training with him every day is going to be much easier.”

The former Atletico Madrid star has signed a contract that will expire in the summer of 2023. And the club has set his release clause at €100 million (£86m/$122m/₹891crore).
