Virgil van Dijk is not even officially a Liverpool player yet – but Manchester United supporters already have a chant mocking the Netherlands centre-back.

The 26-year-old will become the most expensive defender of all-time when he joins the Merseyside giants on January 1 and was in attendance at Anfield to watch his new club face Leicester.

Joel Matip’s horror defending produced a priceless reaction from Van Dijk as Leicester went 1-0 in front and Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to hand the Dutchman his first start to solve the side’s defensive problems.

You’d have thought United fans would have other things on their minds as the Red Devils host Southampton on Saturday afternoon, but clearly not.

Ahead of the Premier League clash they were captured singing: ‘You’ve got Van Dijk, Virgil van Dijk, I just don’t think you understand.

’75mill, he’s just a s*** Phil. You’ve got Virgil van Dijk.’

Asked about his imminent move to Liverpool, Van Dijk said:

‘Delighted and honoured to have agreed to become a Liverpool FC player!’

‘Today is a proud day for me and my family as I join one of the biggest clubs in world football!

‘I can’t wait to pull on the famous red shirt for the first time in front of the Kop and will give everything I have to try and help this great club achieve something special in the years to come.

‘I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Les Reed, the board, manager, players, fans and everyone at Southampton.

‘I will always be indebted to the club for giving me the opportunity to play in the Premier League and despite a difficult last few months I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Saints and have made friends for life at the club. ‘Thank you for everything.
