The other two promising statistics we looked at make a strong case for Agger being a fitting purchase for Barcelona. However, this stands out head-and-shoulders above anything else.
Over the last two seasons, Barcelona fans have witnessed countless defensive errors. These errors often lead to scoring chances—and, against tougher opponents, usually a goal.
It is due to these defensive errors that the club has been in the market for a new center-back, and that is an area that Agger would immediately improve as well.
Last season, Agger made only one defensive error for the entire year. That statistic becomes increasingly impressive when you take into account that he played in over 35 matches.
Barcelona would benefit greatly from a center-back who does not make mistakes and it is this reason why Daniel Agger would prove a very strong partner for Gerard Pique in front of the Barcelona goal.
Again, it is nearly impossible that Barcelona will make a late bid for anyone. However, if the Catalan club was to make a last-minute offer for Daniel Agger, it would be something for Cules to be happy about.
La Blaugrana need a defender who knows how to defend and distribute the ball without error. That is exactly what Agger would provide. He may not be the best defender around, but he knows what he is doing and he does it very well.
Would Daniel Agger fit at Barcelona? Who should La Blaugrana bring in to pair alongside Gerard Pique? Leave your thoughts and comments below!
