Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has praised Donny van de Beek for his move to Manchester United and called it a ‘great step’.
The 23-year-old midfielder has completed his medical in Holland ahead of a £40million move to Old Trafford from Eredivisie champions Ajax. He is set to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing of the summer.
Despite moving to one of Liverpool’s fiercest rivals in United, van Dijk was pleased for his national side team-mate ahead of the transfer.
‘I wish Donny the best wholeheartedly,’ the Reds defender said via De Telegraaf.
‘It is great for him and for the Dutch national team.
‘It’s a great club and step for Donny, and the same goes for Nathan Aké (to Manchester City).’
