Van Dijk contract ‘update’ and Nunez Instagram mystery – Latest LFC News

Virgil van Dijk has provided an encouraging update (of sorts) on his Liverpool future, but Darwin Nunez has curiously deleted all Reds-related Instagram posts.


Van Dijk drops contract update, sort of

Van Dijk is out of contract in the summer of 2025, leading to concerns about a Liverpool exit in the near future.

Thankfully, it looks as though the Reds captain has no intention of leaving, however, telling This Is Anfield he is “very happy” at Anfield and ready to aid a “big transition”:

“I think there is nothing for me to discuss because there is no news, I think the club is very much busy with who is going to be the new manager and that is the main focus.

“Like I said I am very happy here, I love the club and you can see that as well. It’s a big part of my life already, and that is all I can say.

“The focus is now on the last two and then the club will focus on who the new manager is and there will be a big transition and I am part of that.”

Tweet of the day and match of the night

It’s now exactly five years to the day since Sergio Busquets last posted a tweet – what could possibly have happened to put him off doing it again…?

Tuesday marks half a decade since Anfield’s greatest-ever night – where does the time go?

Match of the night is Crystal Palace vs. Man United (8pm BST), which admittedly isn’t an end-of-season thriller!

United still want to seal a European place of some kind, though, so there is an element of importance to it for them.
