He is UNHAPPY: He will leave at the end of the season ‘Graeme Souness’

Liverpool legend claims Reds ace is “unhappy” and wants to move this summer


Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool’s defensive stalwart, is at a crossroads as his contract expires and his future at Anfield is uncertain.

With Jurgen Klopp’s departure imminent and Arne Slot from Feyenoord set to lead Liverpool, speculation about the club’s captain’s future abounds.

Graeme Souness, a revered figure in Liverpool’s history, has sparked further speculation, claiming that van Dijk’s dissatisfaction could pave the way for a move to Real Madrid.

Souness, speaking on William Hill’s new Three Up Front podcast, pointed out van Dijk’s age and desire for silverware as potential factors driving the Dutch defender towards the Spanish giants.

“If you had asked me a month ago, I would have said that whoever succeeds Jurgen Klopp will inherit the best situation possible, but I can’t say that anymore. Liverpool’s performance this month has raised serious concerns about their character.

At 32, van Dijk must face the inevitable realization that his professional football career is nearing its end. With one eye on securing his legacy and adding to his impressive list of accolades, a move to a club like Real Madrid may hold significant appeal.

Will Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk both be at Liverpool next season?

Virgil van Dijk could depart Liverpool this summer.

Souness claimed: “The fact that Virgil van Dijk’s contract end is coming up worries me, he’s 33 in July, and if his agent were to call up the sporting director at Real Madrid, they’d take him. I just look at him now and the noise he’s been making, which he hasn’t done in his entire career, and I believe he’s clearly unhappy.”

The uncertainty surrounding Liverpool’s managerial transition complicates van Dijk’s situation. While Klopp’s departure marks the end of a successful era, it also signals a period of transition and adjustment for the players. The arrival of Arne Slot marks a new era for the club, but whether van Dijk fits into Slot’s plans remains to be seen.

Liverpool have a major conundrum to solve this summer, with two of their most influential players, Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, both facing questions about their futures at the club as their contracts expire next year.

This could result in a massive reconstruction project for their incoming new boss, Arne Slot, this summer.
