“Obviously in the away game he didn’t. He got subbed after 65 minutes or something but it was a very tough one, he was very quick, aggressive, very direct.”
It is clear to see that van Dijk is a big admirer of Haaland and his comments could entice the exciting prospect to come to Anfield.
However, money could be an issue in the deal. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola has already made it known that signing his client would require potential suitors to pay a basic salary worth £43million per year – which does not include bonuses.
Therefore, Jurgen Klopp has a tough decision to make. On one hand, he could push to keep one of the best players in the world in his team, but on the other, he could wave goodbye to Salah in favour of bringing in a future Ballon d’Or winner. Carragher’s comments certainly suggest that the club are not in a position to make both deals happen so it will be one or the other, it is now a waiting game for Liverpool fans.
