Argentina international Sergio Aguero's future has become somewhat of a talking point in recent weeks, although he is expected to see out his current contract in England before moving back to his boyhood club, Independiente.
The 29-year-old, who has apparently hinted before that he would like to line up alongside national teammate Messi more often, saw his father, Leonel del Castillo, cause a stir this week when he suggested a move to Barca could still happen for Aguero.
"It's possible, next year many players change club," Castillo told Radio Continental, as reported by Diario Ole, when asked about the possibility.
Aguero is currently in Barcelona where he had an operation on his knee, and will be out for about a month.
"It was urgent, nothing was programmed," Castillo said of the procedure.
"Club medics recommended who should do the operation. I spoke with Sergio and he told me it all went well.
"My wife sent me a message in the morning and he told her he was in the hospital to be operated on.
"He will be out for a month. Depending on how things go he should arrive (at the World Cup) in decent shape."
Aguero, who was recently named in the PFA Team of the Year, has made 39 appearances for the Citizens so far this season, scoring 30 goals and assisting a further seven strikes.
