Manchester City superstar out to become world’s elite

Manchester City’s £38m summer signing, Sergio Aguero, says that it was the improved chance for silverware and European glory that motivated his move to the Etihad Stadium.

The forward claims that his international compatriot, Lionel Messi, told him to go ahead with the move so that he could win trophies in his future.

Aguero has already netted six goals in his first four Premier League games, and will be hoping to carry that form into Europe when City meet Napoli in their first Champions League match tonight.

Speaking to The Guardian, the 23 year-old stated: “There’s no doubt Messi is currently the best player in the world. He’s won the Ballon d’Or the last two years, but it is my dream too to reach such a level and I work every day with the aim of winning that trophy one day – so I can say, ‘Yes, I am the best player in the world’.”

He added: “I am beginning to understand how much this game against Napoli, and this whole competition, means to City’s fans. They believe we can go a long way in this competition and I think they are right.”
