Aguero ended his 10-year with the Citizens after playing his final game in the UEFA Champions League last weekend.

The Argentine striker was quick to pen a deal with Barcelona and was unveiled earlier this week, but his father has now claimed Chelsea and Arsenal were interested.

"He is happy right now after signing for Barcelona. I see him happy," Leonel Del Castillo has told Radio La Red

"He didn’t know what was going to happen with his future. There were several clubs interested in signing him. Arsenal were interested in him and Chelsea to the last minute. If he didn’t stay in England, it was going to be Italy or Spain.

"He’s been friends with Lionel Messi since they were 15 and they’ve always talked. It looks like Messi is going to stay at Barcelona so they’re going to play together."
