Bayern Munich to inquire about the possibility of signing Virgil van Dijk Transfers

After landing at Anfield in the winter of 2018, Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk regenerated a defence that had previously been a weakness and showed high leadership in one of the best defensive lines in the Premier League.

After a period of heavy injury that hampered his condition, he has returned to his true form this season, and the 32-year-old former Southampton defender has also been appointed as the team’s new captain, but his departure this summer is uncertain due to the departure of Jurgen Klopp and the expiry of his contract, which is coming up in June 2025 The club and the new manager have been linked with a move away.

While it is unlikely that the club or their new manager would want to leave, several European clubs, including Borussia Dortmund, are said to be keeping an eye on developments, and Bayern Munich have made enquiries to Liverpool in order to make the move happen, according to Sports Zone.

Interest from Saudi Arabia has also been suggested, and Liverpool may struggle to persuade them to renew his contract. Even if they are unable to sign a new contract, it is unlikely that they will release him in this summer’s transfer market and will be looking to allow a free transfer in the summer of 2025.

He has played a total of over ‘260’ games for Anfield, captained the Dutch national team and is an integral part of the team. His leadership off the pitch is also an ability that should not be overlooked and cannot be judged on performance alone.

He will turn 33 in July this year, and there could be a sudden decline in his physicality in the future. Nevertheless, he remains an important player for Liverpool and it seems unlikely that van Dijk will leave Anfield at the end of the season.
