Liverpool fc news: World Class defender all set to sign monster £200,000-a-week Liverpool deal to end all speculation!?
Fresh reports have claimed Virgil Van Dijk is ready to commit his long-term future at Liverpool.
Van Dijk is now regarded as one of the best central defenders in the game right now after helping Liverpool become one of best and most exciting teams to watch since his £75 million move from Southampton just a few seasons ago.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media which have suggested that Liverpool are hoping to tie the big Dutchman down to a big new deal this season to pretty much end all speculation that he could leave in the coming windows, with Madrid reportedly eyeing up a possible deal.
But now, according to 90 MIN, Van Dijk is ready to put pen-to-paper and agree a massive new deal to end all speculation on his future and commit to the Liverpool cause.
The Dutchman came second to Barcelona great Lionel Messi in the 2019 Ballon d’Or awards, and while there’s no great rush to get a deal done, it’s understood Van Dijk, 28, will sign before too long.
There is no doubt that with Van Dijk in the side, Liverpool are on course to become Premier League Champions and possibly defend that Champions League crown, and that is why there is a lot of speculation surrounding big clubs.
And having agreed lucrative new contracts for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in the past 12 months, it only seems fair the 2019 Ballon d’Or runner-up be recognised for his accomplishments.
Van Dijk is a massive reason why Liverpool are so good at the back and £200,000-a-week does not even sound like a lot of money, but he will be worth every penny if he does get that much.
