Liverpool fans discuss Barcelona’s interest in Ballon d’Or favourite Virgil van Dijk

Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to discuss John Cross’ column for The Mirror, which states that Barcelona asked about the availability of Virgil van Dijk but were quickly shot down by his representatives.

The Dutchman has emerged as arguably the best centre-back in Europe since arriving at Anfield in a £75m deal from Southampton, which remains as the world-record fee for a defender.

Amazingly, the 28-year-old is also the current favourite for the Ballon d’Or award after a tremendous 2018/19 season, in which he won the Champions League and also picked up the PFA Player of the Year award for his efforts.

Given the state of the transfer market right now, in which players like Harry Maguire and Sean Longstaff are valued at £90m and £50m respectively, you would assume that it would take a new world-record fee entirely to prise van Dijk away from Merseyside.

As a result, some Liverpool fans below have decided to mock Barcelona’s interest in the 6 foot 4 defender, with one fan saying that only £1.4bn would be enough!

Let’s take a look at a few more replies from the Liverpool fans on Twitter…
