Liverpool to give Van Dijk new long-term contract

Liverpool to give Van Dijk new long-term contract

A Liverpool source has told Football Insider that the club are keen to tie the Dutch colossus further down as they prepare for talks over an improved contract ahead of the summer.

Liverpool enjoyed a hugely successful 2019 that saw triumphs in the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup, with Van Dijk playing a major role in transforming the Reds to the most feared side in world football.

It's a challenging one, provided Manchester United played a 4-4-2 development and Liverpool play 4-3-3, yet you are in charge, so you make a decision.

According to "Football Insider", the English side will put a succulent contract renewal offer on the table in the next few days, an offer which will increase his salary above the 10 million a year net salary he is now earning.

It is believed a new deal for Van Dijk is viewed as a "priority" by the club's owners given the enormous impact the Dutchman has provided since his arrival two years ago.

The statement did not specify the person's nationality or what port of entry he or she arrived at in Egypt. Health authorities say it can be hard to distinguish between the two illnesses.


Last season, we had the best defensive record in the Premier League with Van Dijk leading our defense and the former Saints man deservedly won the PFA Player of the Year award. However, reports suggest that the new contract would see him earn £150,000 per week.

Virgil van Dijk has enjoyed enormous success at Liverpool since his move two years ago.

The England worldwide has produced 10 assists, a replication of his form last season which helped Liverpool win the Champions League.

He has played every minute for Liverpool this season. Jurgen Klopp's men have a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League points table.

And if they win away to Norwich on Saturday they will go 25 points clear of second-placed defending champions Manchester City.
