Aguero who is close friends with Messi believes that despite all the off-field controversy, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner will see out his career with the Catalan giants.
“Leo is a player who is already a symbol and legend of Barcelona, but things happen in football.
Many players have changed for Leo and he stayed at Barcelona. He loves the club, he identifies with Barcelona, he is comfortable and happy.
No matter how many things happen, he will continue. Unless something catastrophic happens,” he said as quoted by Goal.
This revelation will come as good news to all the Barca faithful as there is no doubt that their performances on the field revolve around the striker who is their all-time record goalscorer and greatest player in the history of the club.
