The Merseyside giants could reportedly be ready to sell Virgil van Dijk if they receive a transfer bid in the region of £89m.

The 28-year-old defender has been one of Liverpool’ most important footballers in recent times and he’s a target for Los Blancos as a long-term replacement for ageing club captain Sergio Ramos.

Virgil is undoubtedly one of the finest footballers in the world in his position and would be a great fit at the Santiago Bernabeu, where big-name ‘Galactico’ signings like this are always popular.

Still, it’s a surprise that Don Balon suggest Reds would let him go for that kind of price, as it could be argued he’s worth a considerable amount more than that.

Defenders, however, don’t often move for as big fees as attacking footballers, and one imagines the transfer market will also change in the near future due to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Liverpool supporters will surely be hoping Real aren’t ready to pay up for Van Dijk anyway and that he remains at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Zinedine Zidane wants to bolster the back-line during the summer transfer window.
