Daniel Agger has described Luis Suarez’s transfer to Barcelona as “natural” following Liverpool’s sale of the controversial striker.

The Spanish outfit confirmed the arrival of the Uruguay international on a five-year deal on Wednesday after a fee of around £75m was agreed between the two clubs last week.

Money has a lot to say in football so the move is natural

And Reds defender Agger believes that the 27-year-old forward’s big-money move to La Liga should not come as a surprise.

“Players come and go so that’s natural,” the Liverpool Echo quotes Agger as saying.

“Money has a lot to say in football so the move is natural. Someone else has to take over.”

Agger, 29, also refused to rule out a return to his homeland to join his former club Brondby this summer.

Speaking after Liverpool’s 2-1 pre-season defeat by Brondby on Wednesday, he said: “If the time is right and everything falls into place then I wouldn’t rule it out. But the timing has to be right.

“I have thought about it. A lot actually. But I’m here now and that is what I’m focused on.

“As for the rumours, don’t believe everything you hear. My restaurants were sold four years ago and I’ll be surprised and very sad if anyone has put my house up for sale.”
