Reports: Barca Respond To Messi Transfer Suggestion

FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is believed to have made a transfer suggestion to the Catalan club, but it was reportedly shut down by the board.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 32-year-old reportedly asked manager Quique Setien to make a move for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

An injury to star striker Luis Suarez has left the team short in attack, and not just in terms of numbers, but in terms of his invaluable connection with Messi too.

The skipper, seemingly looking for somebody to find a similar on-field relationship with, is believed to suggest to the club that Aguero could be that player.

It has, however, been claimed that the Blaugrana will not move for the City striker, who has scored five goals in his past two Premier League appearances.

Aguero, who joined City in 2011, has scored 251 goals in 360 matches for the Premier League champions, winning four league titles along the way.

Suarez is expected to be out injured until April, and in Setien's first game in charge of Barca, the new manager started with a front three of Antoine Griezmann, Ansu Fati and Messi, with the Argentine predominantly taking up a central position.

The new boss could still experiment with Griezmann down the middle, or perhaps target a younger and cheaper forward to add to the team's attack this month.

Do you think Aguero would fit in at Barcelona? Let us know in the comments section below.
