AC Milan are reportedly interested in Danish Superliga team Brøndby IF’s defender Daniel Agger who had spent 9 seasons in the Premier League in England playing for Liverpool.
Tuttosport claims that the defender, whose contract expires on the 30th of June, will be a free agent and Milan are ready to bargain over what seems to be another transfer disaster (via Football Italia). Agger had joined Liverpool the season after they laid claim to one of the most historic comebacks in football in the Champions League final in Istanbul, when the Reds came back from 3-0 down to defeat Milan in a penalty shootout.
Milan’s unorthodox transfer approaches
Daniel Agger has had an illustrious career with the Merseysiders, which came to an end when he took a pay cut to return to his former club in Denmark. Over his long career, Agger has only played for two clubs – Brondby and Liverpool.
Milan are notorious for landing faded stars and veteran players on the brink of retirement, a policy that has failed in the present years as often as it had succeeded in the past. The unsuccessful acquisitions of Mario Balotelli, Torres and Kaka in recent years and their glorious failures looks to have failed to teach the rossoneri a lesson.
Milan are looking for defensive reinforcements this season with Alex and Mexes set to depart after the summer, once their contracts expire.
Paletta would likely return to Milan following the end of his loan spell from Atalanta, and Zapata will be given a 1 year contract extension. However, it would seem that Milan are in the market for the experienced 31 year old who had called it quits at Liverpool two years ago. Agger had returned to his native Denmark in a surprise move, as it was thought that he could still cut it in a tough league and at a top European club. Now he has a chance to get back to playing for a decorated club, with AC Milan. Everything depends on the new regime and how it will take shape, what role Berlusconi will play in this new Milan and most importantly who will be coaching Milan next season.
