Liverpool defender Agger would be tempted by Barcelona move

Daniel Agger has admitted the allure of Barcelona would be too strong for him to reject. Reported in the Daily Mail, the 27-year-old has been speaking ahead of Denmark’s friendly in Brondby in an attempt to answer all the transfer speculation surrounding him and his future at Liverpool.

Speaking highly of his current club, he said: “I have always considered it an honour to play for a club like Liverpool, and that feeling has been strengthened by the way people in the town have stayed solidly behind the team and me, even when things haven’t always gone as they would have hoped.

Adding to that, the sense of history and passion at the club are the reasons he wants to stay at Anfield. Agger continued: “Everyone knows about the ‘80s team, and how they were winning titles every year, and I have a feeling we are not too far off doing the same. If I didn’t have that feeling, I wouldn’t still be there. But it is a special club, and it still has that feeling about it.

But his remarks – that would be sure to please the Liverpool faithful – ended by conceding that a move to the Catalan giants would be too hard to turn down. He said: “There is one club who would make it very difficult for me to stay at Anfield. Barcelona would be great, because they are the best in the world. But I am feeling great where I am. I’m with a special club, and I feel I am influencing what happens on the pitch. I am happy to be a Liverpool player.

Agger signed for Liverpool in January 2006. He has since gone on to play 119 Premier League games, grabbing 4 goals. All summer the Premier League champions, Manchester City, have been in pursuit of him but it would seem after the Reds rejected a £20m bid for their defender that he is staying put. That is unless Barcelona reveal an interest in signing the Danish centre-back.
