Agger Points Towards The Catalans

Agger Points Towards The Catalans

The 27 year old Dane, who has two years left on his Reds contract, and is a a target for the Premier League Champions Manchester City, who have already had several offers turned down by the Merseyside club. The latest bid is believed to be worth twenty million Pounds. The Catalan giants, meanwhile, have yet to make an offer but should one be made and accepted, Agger has confessed he would favor the move.

The question remains would City be wasting their money on Agger, the formation of a central defensive partnership between himself and Vincent Kompany, many believe Agger will be a considerable improvement on other first-choice option of Joleon Lescott.

The England international has come on in leaps and bounds at the Etihad Stadium, and had a strong second half of the campaign, carrying his form into the European Championships. But, in terms of where City are now, and where they want to go in the future, does Lescott's ability fall just short?

In the meantime, fed up of the bitterness rife on sites like the MUEN?

Clearly didn't like our wage offer then...

He wouldn't be a significant improvement on Lescott. Some areas of his game are stronger than Lescott's but the same can be said vice versa. Lescott was one of the best CBs in the PL last season and his partnership with Vinnie has been the strongest defensive pairing in the PL for two seasons running. What we need is better cover for what we have not spending £20million on an injury prone player. There are better cheaper alternatives available imo

Why are City chasing a CB, when it is clear that other areas needed addressing?

We do need better cover to be fair Buzz. We don't want a situation like last season when Kolo was away and we had to rely on Savic following the ridiculous suspension of Kompany.
16/08/2012 08:38:00
Like we need 4 top strikers we need the same at the back. Kolo is past it and Savic is so so.

If Mancini is going to play three at the back all season then cover is defiantly needed, trouble is there isn't much value for money out there at the minute. If the DRagM is to be believed; its an English contingent for the Blues this season. Butland, Sinclair and Caulker, all are promising English players but are they really adequate cover?
16/08/2012 10:18:00
The DRagM is not to be believed Chris.

By bet is that City will surprise everyone with a couple of quality signing's before the transfer window closes. The board did a pretty good job keeping the Rodwell transfer out of the press; in his interview Rodwell said negotiations had be going on for weeks. Mancini has gone quite on the transfer front, perhaps this is a good sign his targets are being acquired?
16/08/2012 10:47:00
Let's hope so mate.

I've personally maintained all summer that I saw no cause for alarm bells if we didn't recruit. Looking at The Fatman and Robin situation out of town, the last 29 year old we signed for money was Benjani. Times have changed since then and I'd rather the club continued the policy of signing players who are much younger with plenty of years left in them. For me, injury plagued Agger isn't making the right noises. I'd rather go with Micah or Boyata at CB when the cover is required.
