Liverpool centre back Daniel Agger has admitted that he has “no idea” whether the club want him to sign a new deal. The Danish defender’s contract expires next summer but the club are yet to tie him down to a long term deal.
Agger has attracted attention from both AC Milan and Real Madrid, but manager Rafa Benitez insists that he has a long term future at Anfield. Agger moved to Liverpool in January 2006 on a four and a half year contract from Brondby for £5.8m. Benitez has also hit out at his bosses for their failure to give Agger a new contract.
Agger has also had limited starts at Anfield since the arrival of Slovakian centre half Martin Skrtel. Benitez has four central defenders to choose from- Agger, Jamie Carragher, Sami Hyypia and Skrtel. Injuries have not helped Agger’s cause either. The Dane also reportedly wants a higher salary than what the Reds are prepared to offer him.
