Aguero Explains Why City Signing Messi Would Be Difficult

Sergio Aguero has delivered a massive boost to Manchester City as he is back in training after recovering from a auto accident.

The City manager spoke about Mendy's influence after refusing to comment on the possibility of signing Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez in January.

Aguero, who plays with the 30-year-old in the Argentina setup, believes luring his global colleague to City would be tough as he is more than just another player at Barca. Maybe [Aguero will play against Stoke], we are going to see the last training session.

Aguero suffered the injury when the taxi he was travelling in crashed in Amsterdam on September 28, leaving the City striker facing up to six weeks on the sidelines as the injury saw Aguero miss City's 1-0 win at Chelsea, as well as Argentina's two World Cup qualifiers.

"Of course, he's not 100 per cent, but he's recovered quite well. Unfortunately it was long open, but now it is closed", Guardiola told reporters on Friday. "He explained to us what happened and the most important thing is it was not as bad as it could have been".

But while Aguero is ready to return, captain Vincent Kompany's injury woe continues. "He's much, much better, but hopefully he's in the last part of his recovery", he said. "He'll notice how he feels and when he'll be able".

"We will see about January, we are in October".

Aguero is City's top-scorer with six goals in as many Premier League appearances for Pep Guardiola's side, who lead the standings on 19 points after seven fixtures. "It'll be a tough game".
