Agüero dumbfounded by Barça news Messi: ‘Hacked, I Thought’

The forced and much-discussed departure of Lionel Messi from FC Barcelona cut into Sergio Agüero. The Argentine striker had just come over from Manchester City and was going to play with his bosom friend for the first time at club level, but that never happened.
Barcelona was busy working on a new contract for the formally transfer-free Messi in August, but ran into Primera Division salary restrictions. When the club finally announced that it would not work out, Agüero maté was drinking with well-known YouTuber Ibai Llanos. He looked at his phone at one point and said dont fool me, is this true? , says Kun via his Twitch channel, in conversation with Spanish journalist José Álvarez.
For Agüero, too, the news about his buddy came like a bolt from the blue. I thought it was a joke and I said, Ibai, idiot, that
s impossible. I thought someone hacked into Barcelonas social media. The unsuspecting Agüero had seen Messi the night before and initially did not dare to contact him. I decided to wait, but after a few hours, the statement was still online. Then it dawned on me.
Agüero himself ended up playing five games for FC Barcelona. He scored in El Clásico against Real Madrid, but dropped out in the home game with Deportivo Alavés on November 30: the now 34-year-old Argentine appeared to have heart problems and had to end his career.
