Barcelona summer signing Sergio Aguero has frowned at reports that he signed for the Catalan because of Lionel Messi.
In an interview with RAC1, the former Man City star stated that he signed for Barca due to the love he has for the club.
There has been a lot of speculation that Lionel Messi’s exit would lead to Aguero following his compatriot out of the club, but the forward dismissed them out of hand.
“I didn’t understand why that was said,” Aguero told RAC1.
“Messi hadn’t signed when I signed. An invented clause was spoken about, but there was nothing. Then I got injured.”
“I’m progressing well and next week I think I’ll work a bit on the pitch,” Aguero said.
“There’s no timeframe for when I’ll return, but I’m progressing well and it will be shorter than predicted.
“The last MRI looked good, but it’s best to see how things progress in the coming weeks.”
