Dad denies demanding Barcelona buy Man City's Aguero in Messi contract talks

The father of Lionel Messi denies demanding the signing of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in talks with Barcelona.

It was claimed Jorge Messi urged Barca to buy Aguero while negotiating new terms for his son.

But he told Ara Bassas: "Firstly, the meeting focused more on broader contractual matters than exact figures.

"I cannot combine an improved contract for my son with demands to sign a player or offer another a new deal."
