Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has opened the door to a move to Barcelona, admitting he would find it difficult to turn down the chance to play for the Spanish giants.
The Danish defender recently claimed he was happy to stay at Anfield, but revealed that decisions over his future were ultimately ‘out of his hands’.
Manchester City have also shown their interest in the 27-year-old, with Roberto Mancini failing in a £20million bid to bring the player to the Etihad Stadium last week.
Now it appears that the Nou Camp is the destination of choice for the Danish international, were he to leave the Reds.
“Barcelona would be great. They are the one team who would make it difficult for me to stay,” Agger is quoted as saying in The Daily Mail at a media gathering ahead of the international friendly against Slovenia.
The same paper claims that new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would accept an offer in the region of £30million for the player, who moved to Merseyside from Brondby in 2006.
However, Agger doesn’t appear willing to force a move away from Liverpool, and claimed he’d be happy to try and get the club back into the Champions League should a move fail to materialise.
“The club and the town (of Liverpool) have been very good to me throughout my time at Anfield. Everything has been handled in a very professional way, and I have always had respect from people round the club and from Liverpool supporters,” the defender continued.
“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.
“You get a sense of how good and how big this club is when you play for them in the Champions’ League. They are special games, and I believe we can recreate those great nights, hopefully soon.”
