thumbnail Hello,

Manchester City are set to offer the centre-back a bumper pay-packet of around £100,000-a-week, but would letting one of their key players go be a sensible idea for the Reds?

POLL

The Premier League's biggest spenders of recent years, Manchester City are lining up their latest target as Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is set to be the subject of a £20 million bid.

The Danish centre-back has become one of the club's key players, however a deal for that price would reflect a significant increase on their initial investment of just £6m.

But would that be the right choice for the club?

At £20m, the club are not likely to receive many higher offers for a player who, at the age of 27, should peak in the next few years. That money could be invested in the squad. Added to this, his recent injury problems have seen him miss large portions of recent seasons.

But, with a burgeoning partnership developing with Martin Skrtel, and under the stewarship of Brendan Rodgers, things are looking up for the club, would the sale of a key player represent a big step backwards?

HAVE YOUR SAY

So, what do you think? Should Liverpool take the money and try to find a replacement for a smaller fee? Or should they hold firm and resist the offer from City? Let us know by voting in our poll, leaving a comment below and getting involved with the debate on Twitter and Facebook.
