Liverpool to offer new deal to Dutch star Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool don't want to let Virgil van Dijk escape.

Sportsmail revealed last week that all players who have played in the Premier League this season will be eligible for the £4million bonus should they win the title, which will be paid on a sliding scale determined by their number of appearances.

The five-man bench has three Liverpool players and two from United's '99 squad.

"Virgil van Dijk alongside Jaap Stam, that would be unyielding". No one would overcome them.

He has developed so much as a player working with Klopp and his coaching staff, with the fans who used to berate him at Anfield being forced to accept he has become a vital cog in the success of this Liverpool team. And just how do you fit Liverpool's front 3 in?

Van Dijk earned a clean sheet bonus of £750,000 last season as he helped Liverpool to 26 clean sheets, smashing the 22 required in his contract.

Steve McClaren argued that Van Dijk would have been the only Liverpool star to make the combined XI. He won the PFA Player of the Year Award in his debut season with the Reds.

Liverpool fans are already basking in the euphoria of winning the Premier League title which has, for over 30 years, eluded their partly enviable history in the modern-day football.

However, only one United defender is on the side, with the two Liverpool sides involved and an Anfield line by Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

Sheffield United have been sensational this season and their Ireland centre-back John Egan deserves a mention for the spare spot at heart of the defence if Liverpool's Joe Gomez does not get the nod alongside Van Dijk.

First-team regulars such as Van Dijk will bag approximately £150,000 on top of the standard win bonuses they get during the season.
