Great Dane Simon Kjaer insists love of Liverpool is no barrier to joining United

Palermo defender Simon Kjaer says that being a Liverpool fan wouldn't stop him from joining Manchester United. Reports in Italy have recently linked the highly rated Denmark international with a move to Old Trafford. The 20-year-old, who was touted as a Liverpool and Chelsea target in the summer, has conceded he is likely to move on at the end of the season. It is believed that there is a buyout clause in his contract set at about £11million. Although the centre back is a childhood Reds fan, he says his head would rule his heart in any decision over his future. Having already warned Sir Alex Ferguson that he won't join United to sit on the bench, he now gives the other perspective in an interview with his native Tipsbladet newspaper. 'If United just had two defenders whilst Liverpool had three, I would choose United without hesitation,' he said. 'It does not help to choose with the heart in that kind of situation. I am a professional.'
