There have been rumours that Lionel Messi had requested his club to sign Sergio Aguero as a pre-requisite fo him signing a new contract with Barcelona. Recently Barcelona have tabled a £31 million bid for the Man-city foward. Now, Aguero's father claims his son has always wanted to play for Barcelona ----->Spanish media report the Catalans have made an opening £31m bid ------>New Barca coach Luis Enrique is keen admirer of the Argentine striker ------->The 25-year-old scored 28 goals in 34 games for Man City last season Sergio Aguero's father has revealed that the Manchester City striker 'would love to go to Barcelona' amid Spanish media reports that the Catalans have launched a £31million bid. Barcelona hope to tie up a deal for the 47-cap Argentina international and know that their opening offer is likely to be rebuffed outright by City. But new Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique is a keen admirer of Aguero and he will insist that the Catalans return with a higher bid if a deal could potentially be struck, according to Spanish website Sport. But it won't be all smooth road fo Sergio Aguero to move fro Man-city to Barcelona as even his dad admits. His father Leonel del Castillo does not believe that Manuel Pellegrini will allow his star striker to leave for the club he has always wanted to represent, such is his importance to the side. He told Spanish newspaper AS: 'He would love to go to Barcelona but Manchester City will make it impossible (for Aguero to go).'
