Liverpool’s Daniel Agger is worth £90m (Chris Hoy might be cheaper than Van Persie)

ANYONE missing the Premier League? No. Thought not. All those tossers like John Terry and his ilk, demanding respect and giving none clash horribly with the grace, drive and charisma of the Olympic athletes. While we wait for athletics to replace football – a sport none of the Home Nations are much good at – as the national sprot, let’s see what football-related bollocks the papers are talking about. Eyes turn to Daniel Agger, a decent-but-uninspiring defender currently playing at Liverpool. News is that Manchester City want to buy him. But how much is he worth?

“Manchester City are continuing to press for Liverpool’s Daniel Agger. The defender, 27, is valued close to £30million” Daily Mail

“Manchester City have been told they have to pay a club-record fee for a defender – more than £22 million – if they are to convince Liverpool to part company with Daniel Agger” – The Times

“Liverpool have told Manchester City they can have Daniel Agger… but he’ll cost them! The Reds have slapped a £20million price-tag on the Denmark defender, and will refuse to do business until the Premier League’s moneybags champions agree to pay that much” The Daily Mirror

“Manchester City have upped their bid for Liverpool defender Daniel Agger to £18m” – MEN

Agger is worth only what zillionaire who sees football as a big marketing campaign will pay for him. As for Robin Van Persie, the Arsenal captain who wants to leave the club, the Daily Mail has facts:

“Juventus have sensationally pulled out of the race to sign Robin van Persie, leaving Manchester rivals United and City to battle it out for the wantaway Arsenal striker” – Daily Mail, July 27

“Juventus will be the first team to meet Arsenal’s asking price for Robin van Persie when they bid £20million for the striker in the coming weeks. The Italians are locked in a battle with Manchester duo City and United for the wantaway Gunners captain, but believe they hold the advantage due to the player’s desire not to play for another club in England'”- Daily Mail, July 31

“Van Persie has not played for the Gunners since declaring his intention to leave the club and Manchester United remain in pole position to sign the Dutchman” – Daily Mail, August 7

Chris Hoy would most likely play for fun…
