Due to the transfer of Harry Maguire from Manchester United, may, Virgil van Dijk is no longer the most expensive defender in the world, to call it that, even if he is not bothered at all. The Dutch international has warned that the new acquisition of the ‘Red Devils’, however, the additional burden that the high price brings.
Van Dijk has made it clear in January, 2018, for approximately eur 84 million in the move from Southampton to Liverpool, and had since become the most expensive defender in the world, but United brought in there on Monday to change that. The English club took a Muscle for almost 87 million euros from Leicester City.
“I know that there is a time coming when I will no longer be the most expensive defender in the world, it would have been,” says Van Dyke, in conversation with The Guardian. “That’s part of the transfer market. I wish you and Harry good luck. For the price and also the extra pressure, but at a club like Manchester United, you’ll get there, no problem with that.”
