There are rumoured reports of Virgil van Dijk’s agent having had a conversation with Real Madrid as the Liverpool star looks to sign a new contract at Anfield.
That is the viewpoint of ESPN FC pundit Shaka Hislop.
Hislop says it will be a good move for Van Dijk to be offered a new contract for his performance.
But he may not go for another five years deal as in the meantime his agent will be in talks with clubs like Real Madrid to look for a new opportunity.
“I think this is just Van Dijk’s representatives doing as any good representatives should,” Hislop said.
“Given how good and how important he has been to Liverpool, you’re right, go and knock on the door.
“But in the meantime, I’m whispering to clubs like Real Madrid [saying]: ‘listen, he’s the best centre-back in the world, aren’t you interested?’.
It’s for sure that the Dutch defender is committed to Liverpool after his performance throughout the season which included his crucial role in Champions League win over Tottenham on Saturday.
