Aguero, who won his third Premier League title with Manchester City this season, has continually been linked with a move away from the Etihad.

Sergio Aguero has said he found it hard to adapt to Pep Guardiola's demands when the former Barcelona coach first arrived at Manchester City.

But the Argentina worldwide has been back to his best this season, scoring 30 goals to become the club's all-time record scorer despite a number of injury setbacks. Former Atletico Madrid forward and ex-Barcelona coach did not have a smooth relation at the beginning, who demanded a greater all-around contribution from his striker last season and dropped him in favour of Brazil youngster Gabriel Jesus.

In a television interview with TyC Sports, the City striker talked about the possibility of playing with his best friend Messi at Barcelona. "Leo eventually will stay there and I'll end up staying with City".

Replacing him with someone of similar calibre would be far from easy, even for a club of City's resources, but it bodes well that Aguero is confident of staying put.

Aguero is now trying to get himself fit for the World Cup after undergoing knee surgery.

"I spoke with the Manchester City doctors this season and said, "we are going to wait because we have the Champions League".

"After five years, I feel no pain and my knee feels like new. I've always had problems but now I feel different, I can bend it and it's a relief".

"Since 2013 I'd been suffering with my knee and if I hadn't had the operation, I could have missed the World Cup".
