Sergio Aguero will only sign a two-year deal with Barcelona unless his demand is met, reports in Spain claim.
According to AS, Manchester City’s outgoing record scorer will not formalise his move unless he knows one-club legend and Argentina team-mate Lionel Messi has ‘committed his future’.
Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Juventus have been linked with the 32-year-old former Atletico Madrid star.
But the Nou Camp side have remained the frontrunners to capture one of the Premier League’s top strikers of this century.
And meanwhile, Aguero’s agents were given a copy of a draft contract for him joining the Spanish giants.
He remains a far cheaper option for Barca than taking part in a bidding war for Borussia Dortmund goal machine Erling Haaland.
And assuming Messi stays, the main issue for Aguero switching to Barca could be his £12million-a-year wage demands.
