Virgil van Dijk targeted by Barcelona and Real Madrid in record-breaking move Dail

Barcelona and Real Madrid are targeting Virgil van Dijk in a transfer that would smash the world transfer fee record for a defender.

The Holland centre-back joined Liverpool from Southampton for a staggering £75million in January 2018, a figure that saw his former club Celtic earn around £7m thanks to a sell-on clause.

It remained a record for two years until Harry Maguire joined Manchester United for £80m this summer.

Van Dijk is widely considered the best defender in the game and has helped Liverpool to back-to-back Champions League Finals – including the victory over Tottenham in May.

Now Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are eyeing moves for van Dijk, according to Dario AS.

The 28-year-old was this month due to sign a new contract until 2025 but no official announcement has been made on the renewal.
