Maguire to Man City would be like van Dijk to Liverpool – Iborra

Virgil van Dijk

Van Dijk & Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk made his big-money move to Liverpool back in January of 2018.

When VVD first joined Jurgen Klopp’s side, their defence was still a bit shaky, with no real leader.

However, the Dutchman has helped to transform the Reds’ backline into one of the best in the Premier League.

The 2018/19 season saw Liverpool keep the tightest defence in the PL, letting in just 22 goals in 38 games.

After being one of the standout stars for Liverpool this past season, van Dijk won the PFA Player of the Year award, and Premier League Player of the Season award.

Maguire to Man City

Now, amid van Dijk’s successful spell with Liverpool, Vicente Iborra is backing Harry Maguire to do similar things to VVD.

The Leicester City man is being linked with a move to Premier League Champions, Manchester City.

Should Maguire make the switch to City, the stopper’s former teammate Iborra believes that such a transfer would be on the level of VVD to Liverpool:

“He is a great player, he is very strong, with a great plant, a great start and he has a goal, he made a great World Cup and he is a great player, his transfer to City can be at the level of Van Dijk and Liverpool ” As quoted by Marca.
