Sergio Aguero has seemingly poured cold water on suggestions he was weighing up a move to Chelsea by insisting he only had eyes on the Nou Camp.

Barcelona on Tuesday confirmed that Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will join the club when his contract expires at the end of June.

"I didn’t even hesitate. I didn’t want someone else to talk to me, just Barca," he said.

‘"(Pep) Guardiola, when we won the Premier League, he told me ‘You’re going to the best team in the world’.

"As a boy I said one day they will surely notice me and here I am."

Argentine striker Aguero, who will officially join Barca on a two-year deal on July 1, said he hoped to play alongside compatriot Lionel Messi.

Messi, who is godfather to Aguero's son, will see his contract expire this month and there has been no news of an extension.

"I hope we can play together," Aguero told reporters.

"But the thing with Leo is that he'll make decisions with the club. I've been with him since a kid with the national team, I know him very well, and think he'll stay here."

Messi requested to leave Barca last year and was linked with a move to City or Paris St Germain but opted to stay for another season.

He was given permission by head coach Ronald Koeman to miss their final La Liga match of the season and take holiday.
