The arrival of Sergio Agüero to Barcelona in 2021 was one of the bombshells of recent years. After a great cycle at Manchester City, the forward was going to meet with Lionel Messi and everything indicated that it was going to be a party. However, Leo left for PSG unexpectedly. In the last hours, Kun told details of that moment.

“When City told me that they weren't going to renew me there, a call came up and my manager told me: 'Barça asked if you were willing to go there, but they can't pay you what City pays you.' . I told him: 'I don't care.' It was fixed very quickly,” Kun said in dialogue with Clank.media, Juan Pablo Varsky's podcast. The motivation to play with Leo was more important than anything and everything indicated that the long-awaited match would take place.

However, the one who would end up leaving the Spanish team would be Messi himself. “When I had almost everything closed with Barça, I told Leo, he was happy. And then he went through everything that happened, what am I going to do? It was something that I imagined and I was excited to play with him, but football is like that and things happen that you have to accept,” he revealed.
The news of Messi's departure from Barcelona was not easy for the football world to assimilate and Kun experienced a particular moment when he found out: “I was with Ibai (llanos, the streamer). “I was teaching him how to drink mate and we both found out.”
This bombshell was so surprising that neither of them could believe it: “Imagine that Ibai is joking all day, I didn't believe him. And he also said 'I think he's fake'. “We all said it was a lie.”
Finally, the least desired confirmation came first-hand to Kun: “I asked Leo and I just said: 'Is it true?'. And he said yes. “I didn't answer him anything else because I didn't know what to say.”
