Daniel Agger Wants To Stay At Liverpool But Fears Being Forced Into Manchester City Move

Dane wants Anfield stay but admits club may sell.

Daniel Agger insists he wants to stay at Liverpool but fears the club may sell him to Manchester City.

The Premier League Champions are reportedly keen to sign the 27-year-old but have seen two enquiries rejected by the Anfield outfit.

But Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has conceded that Agger could be sold at the right price, with Liverpool believed to be holding out for £22m plus Adam Johnson on a season-long loan.

“I’d rather stay,” centre-half Agger told Danish newspaper Politiken. “I can’t imagine playing for any other club in England but you never know if the club think it’s better to sell.”

City boss Roberto Mancini has expressed his frustration at the club’s lack of transfer activity this summer and is understood to be keen to conclude a deal for Agger.

The Danish international, who impressed at Euro 2012 in June, has two years remaining on his current deal on Merseyside but talks on a new contract have stalled.

“I am fine with my situation, the club will have to find out what they want to do,” continued Agger.

“I’ve heard nothing from them. I’d rather stay but that decision is not up to me at the moment.

“Liverpool can do a deal even though I have two years on my contract, but I haven’t changed my mind on the subject.

“Sometimes you can end up in a position where it’s not your decision.

“I don’t want to be somewhere I am not wanted but I would prefer if they want me to stay. That is my priority.”
