Barcelona move for Van Dijk

Liverpool defender, Van Dijk has turned down inquiries from Barcelona about a possible move to join the Spanish Giants.

The 28-year old star player from Holland joined Liverpool 18 months ago for $75million and has since been a revelation.

Since his arrival, Liverpool’s defence has been transformed and he has established himself as one of the best centre-backs on football.

He emerged ths PFA player of the year last season and won the UEFA Champions League.

Van Dijk is currently tipped to win the 2019 Ballon d’Or award and rivaled by Lionel Messi.

Months ago, the defender stated his commitment to Liverpool.

“It’s my club definitely and I’m very proud to be wearing this shirt every day. 

“But it’s also one of the reasons when I came here – how everyone lives around Liverpool, lives and dies for the club, want to do everything for us, will be there in tough times. 

“They will also be with us in the good times.

“I think this is a real football club and you don’t have too many at this level that are living and breathing for a club like Liverpool.

“It was a very important decision [for me] to make, but so far it has gone pretty well.”
