A thought dawned upon me today with regards to the possibility of loosing Mascherano to Barcelona in the summer. It looks like Alonso may just stay now since Real Madrid are saying they can’t afford the 35m pounds we want for him. But if Mascherano leaves, we will need another holding midfielder. Lucas has stepped in at times for Masch but I have little faith in Lucas. How about Agger filling in the Mascherano role?
Agger is a center back by profession but I am sure he can be turned into a very effective defensive midfielder. He can obviously tackle well and he is one of the best center backs I have ever seen with the ball at his feet. He can pick out a good pass and as a center back he is great at stepping with the ball out of defence and launching an attack. And not to forget his rocket of a left foot.
What do you think about this?
