Leandro Paredes has explained the reason for his clash with Lionel Messi during the Champions League fixture between Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona at Camp Nou in February.

PSG won the game 4-1 and went on to reach the quarterfinals at the expense of Barça, but not before Paredes got caught up with his Argentine international teammate.

"It was nothing," Paredes told TyC Sports, playing down the coming together. "It was the usual nonsense that happens on the pitch. It was a normal heated moment during a game."

He continued: "I'm sure he didn't like a challenge, he gave me some kicks as well. But it happens with everyone and in every game. I have even got wound up with my brothers, with my dad, with lifelong friends."

The PSG midfielder also recognised that he would like Sergio Aguero, who will leave Manchester City when his contract expires this summer, to join him at the French club.

"We always like to play with the best players and Kun is one of them," he said. "First of all, I hope he decides what's best for him and, if that's with us, he will be welcome."
