Sergio Aguero says he has wanted to join Barcelona since he was a child and did not hesitate to accept their offer.

The striker says it has been his dream since the age of 14 to join Barca and is delighted to make the return to Spain.

“I am very happy, I will try to do my best for the club, help the team win important things. It is an immense joy,” he said at a press conference following his unveiling as a Barcelona player.

“For me, Barca has always been the best team in the world and Leo [Messi] is also there.

“I told [president Joan] Laporta before that as a boy I said: ‘One day they will surely notice me.’ And here I am. I didn’t imagine it, but anyone runs to sign for Barca.”

He added: “When Barca asked about me, I didn’t even hesitate. I told my agent that I didn’t want him to talk to another team, only Barca.

“It was an immense joy when they contacted my agent. I’ve been interested since I was 14 years old.”

Aguero hopes Messi decides to stay and is optimistic about the chances of that happening.

“We hope to play together, of course. But we have been negotiating for a long time, these are decisions that Leo will make with the club. It will be a pleasure and pride to play together.

“I have known him for a long time and I think he will stay.”

He continued: “I speak [to Messi] every day, in the last message he congratulated me. We have known each other for a long time and for me playing now and training with him every day is going to be much easier.”
