It's suggested the Argentine superstar is tempted by City's monster offer although Barcelona are convinced he'll remain at the Nou Camp.

In spite of the delay, Aguero does not think that there is much hope of Messi joining him at City, even if money is not an issue for the Premier League side.

Speaking to TyC Sports (h/t Sky Sports" Rory O'Callaghan), Aguero said he didn't realise he got very lucky until he arrived at the hospital: "When I got to the hospital I asked the doctor if I could play for City on the Saturday [against Stoke].

"But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it's hard for them to leave".

The 29-year-old also confessed that he would be delighted to have his worldwide team-mate lining up alongside him at club level, but admitted that it was hard to see that happening.

"I would love to [see Messi join] - who wouldn't love to have Leo in his team? - but he's a symbol of his club and I think it would be rather hard". "On Thursday I will train with the group and see if I'm comfortable".

Aguero added: "When a player has a free day at Manchester City, most of the players go to London, others to Italy, some to Spain".

"I don't know yet". I had nearly two days off and going to the airport was when I had that accident. "I don't want to play and then have a knock that keeps me out for another week".

"It depends how I feel, it's not the same training as playing a football game".
