According to AS, both Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in signing Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk from Liverpool, whilst the Spanish giants are also eyeing a move for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
The report claims that neither Ernesto Valverde nor Zinedine Zidane are fully comfortable in their roles at Barca and Real Madrid respectively.
And Klopp is allegedly viewed as the perfect replacement due to his recent work at Anfield – delivering last season’s Champions League title, and turning the Merseyside giants into an effective football team who know how to get results consistently.
The publication also claims that van Dijk is a target for the Spanish giants, meanwhile, with the pair looking to improve their defensive units.
As expected, a number of Liverpool fans have been on social media offering their views on the report which has come directly from Spain.

Klopp would never go to clubs like Madrid and Barcelona. He doesn’t seem like the type to represent these soulless clubs with no passion

Haha you got to love it, so they have no chance of signing VVD and want Klopp, who they have no chance of getting either, to come in so it would be easier, I see. Klopp has said non stop he would not manage in Spain and he ALWAYS sees out his deals. By which time VVD will be 31.
