With veteran defender Carlos Puyol now 34 years old and coming to the end of the line, Barca want to reduce their age profile and are ready to return with a firm bid at the end of the season.

The Anfield club seem certain to resist, with manager Brendan Rodgers already facing up to the prospect of signing THREE central defenders in the summer. (Daily Mirror)

It will be very difficult for Liverpool to keep a hold of Agger if Barca make a firm offer, as they are simply the best footballing side on the planet right now. But he does have a contract at Anfield and they will not be forced into selling him.
