The 33-year-old flew to Argentina without yet renewing his contract at Barcelona, which is set to expire DURING the Copa on June 30.
But his old pal Sergio Aguero is hopeful that they will play together next season, after the Manchester City legend penned a two-year deal in Catalonia.
The 32-year-old said: “I talk to Leo every day and he sent me a congratulatory message.
“Now that I will have him every day it will be much easier.
“What happens with Leo will be the decision of the club but it is a pleasure and a pride to play with Leo.
“If he continues, which I think he will, I will try to give everything as he has always done.”
Aguero also gushed about how good it feels to have joined Barcelona.

He continued: “I didn’t even hesitate. I didn’t want someone else to talk to me, just Barca.
“Guardiola, when we won the Premier League, he told me ‘You’re going to the best team in the world’.
“For me, since I was a child – and now also because Leo is here – this is the greatest team.
“As a boy I said one day they will surely notice me and here I am.
“I will help to win and do great things. Except for last season, at City I have had nine very good years and above all I have been able to help the team achieve important things.
“Last year, due to my knee, I could not be at the maximum, and also after Covid, but later on I felt good and the knee is perfect. Now we just have to show it here.”
