Manchester United could be dreaming of landing Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk as hinted by Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson.
The former Southampton star joined the Anfield and immediately settled to become one of the best in the league and has been able to transform the Liverpool defence into conceding lesser goals.
Speaking ahead of the Liverpool game the Sky Sports pundit stated that he would have loved the Portuguese boss to move in for the Liverpool star knowing that the United are desperately in need of defenders.
He stated that the United side are not good enough and would need a player with the calibre of the Netherland international.
United have so far conceded 26 games in 16 Premier League games which is the worst in their club history over a long time.
However, United will travel to the Merseyside club to face Liverpool in the highly anticipated tie against Liverpool.
Manager Jose Mourinho has stated his side can defeat the Reds at home, noting that he has got a quality side that will be able to execute the game and give the shock.
United are sixth place in the Premier League table and are 16 points behind Liverpool who are currently league leaders.
