We were really hoping that Newcastle could sign former 31 year-old Liverpool defender Daniel Agger, who will be a free agent this summer, but a report in Italy says he is going to join AC Milan.
Tuttosport are reporting that Milan officials have contacted Agger’s reps with a view to signing the free agent in the summer, and he will get a fairly hefty pay rise on what he’s been getting over the last two years at Bondby in Denmark.
Daniel Agger – report he’s off to AC Milan
Agger was signed for £6M by Rafa Benitez for Liverpool in January, 2006 from Bondby – at that time it was the record transfer for a Danish player.
Agger stayed on Merseyside for eight and a half years before moving back to Bondby two years ago, but now it looks like he’s taking a step back up in class – with AC Milan and presumably not with Newcastle.
Agger played 232 times for Liverpool with 14 goals and he is currently the captain of Denmark with 71 appearances and 12 goals.
On the personal side of things Daniel is trying to help children in need and he launched The Agger Foundation back in 2012.
That’s good for him – and very good for the children he is helping!
But we probably need to cross Daniel off the list – looks like he’s not coming.
