The future of Lionel Messi remains unclear, but a member of Victor Font’s team says it will support Barcelona to sign Sergio Aguero.
Barcelona’s signing of Sergio Aguero could help convince Lionel Messi to remain, according to Juli Lopez, who is affiliated with Victor Font’s candidacy to be the next president of the club.
Lopez, however, who, if Font wins the election, will oversee the sports department, feels that a familiar face coming from City could help Messi make all the difference.
Asked in a Marca interview if bringing in Aguero would help Messi decide to stay in Spain, he replied: “Absolutely. Absolutely.”
Another goalscorer is required for Barcelona. Aguero wouldn’t be signed just so that Messi stays. We’re talking about a top striker who wants to play top-level European football in Qatar before the World Cup.
“He would bring a huge lift to the club and would play a huge role in Barcelona.”
