LIONEL MESSI and Sergio Aguero could finally realise their dream of playing club football together as Paris Saint-Germain eye a Barcelona swap deal.
Reports suggest PSG are interested in exchanging Mauri Icardi for Barca’s Aguero, just three months after the latter arrived in Catalonia.
The former Manchester City forward opted for the Nou Camp this summer to link up with close pal Messi.
Messi famously represented the Catalan giants from the age of 13 but financial chaos at the club this summer prevented him from signing a new deal.
That resulted in his blockbuster departure for PSG just days after Aguero’s arrival in Spain.
Now there are reports Messi is unhappy with life in Paris and the Ligue 1 outfit reckon bringing his old mate to the French capital will improve the situation.
The two Argentina internationals have long been friends, with Messi even godfather to Aguero’s son Benjamin.
Going the other way would be fellow Argentinian Icardi, who is thought not to see eye to eye with PSG’s new arrival.

The 28-year-old is becoming an off-field distraction at the Parc des Princes as his repeated relationship issues with wife Wanda Nara hit the headlines.
There is just one snag – Barcelona are not thought to be keen on the swap idea.
Aguero only managed to make his debut in the iconic claret and blue shirt on Sunday after picking up a calf injury on the eve of the LaLiga season.
He came on with three minutes to go in a much-needed 3-1 victory over Valencia for Ronald Koeman’s struggling side.
