Barcelona star Lionel Messi would like to see Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero make the move to Real Madrid.

Despite playing for Real Madrid's title rivals Barcelona, Messi admits he would like to see his friend move back to La Liga.

He told Radio 9: "If he goes to Real Madrid I am sure it will give him much joy. If it's the best thing for him, I will be very happy, because of our friendship.

"I get along very well with Kun off the field and we play well together. However in the national team there are very good strikers so we must take advantage of every time we are recalled."
