Sergio Aguero’s father has revealed that Arsenal and Chelsea expressed an interest in signing his son, while he blasted Pep Guardiola for his treatment of the former Manchester City striker.

Opportunities were there for a prolific presence to remain in England , but they were passed up in favour of joining fellow countryman Lionel Messi at Camp Nou.

What has been said? 
Leonel Del Castillo has told Radio La Red of Aguero’s decision to head for Catalunya: “He is happy right now after signing for Barcelona. I see him happy.

“He didn’t know what was going to happen with his future. There were several clubs interested in signing him. Arsenal were interested in him and Chelsea to the last minute. If he didn’t stay in England, it was going to be Italy or Spain.

“He’s been friends with Lionel Messi since they were 15 and they’ve always talked. It looks like Messi is going to stay at Barcelona so they’re going to play together.”

What did he say about Guardiola? 
When asked if he believed Guardiola’s tears as he discussed Aguero leaving City, Aguero’s father said: “I don’t believe Guardiola. He never wanted him, he wants to be the protagonist of all his teams.

“He never treated him well, nor me or his brothers.

“Guardiola is a great coach but from one day to the next he changes the players, the environment changes. You never know if you are a starter or not. He said he was irreplaceable but does not have him in the squad.”

The bigger picture 
Aguero registered 260 goals for City through 390 appearances.

Aguero has been joined at Camp Nou by former City team-mate Eric Garcia , with the promise there for more arrivals to come as Barca continue to be heavily linked with the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum , Memphis Depay and Gianluigi Donnarumma
