Most Expensive Defenders In Premier League History | ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE 21/22 | THE GOAL POST
Justin is back in action and he will host the Goal Post. In this episode, he talks about the latest updates of the Premier League. Especially Justin focuses on Premier League’s most expensive defenders.
Transfer of Raphael Varane
Raphael Varane can’t be the most expensive defender in Premier League history. Although he is the one that got the World Cup title (won in Russia). Varane left Real Madrid a few weeks ago. Keep in mind that along with Varane, Sergio Ramos also left the team. Varane is ready for a new challenge, especially in the Premier League. Manchester United did everything to negotiate a really good contract with the defender. The French defender knows that everything depends on his attitude and experience. Varane left Madrid with the tears and asked former teammates to stay strong and said that he was very grateful. Raphael Varane is now part of Manchester United. Keep in mind that MU got a really good advantage in the summer. Jadon Sancho signed with MU too, so the team has to be unstoppable in upcoming years.
Van Dijk to Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp had only one target from the start in Liverpool. The German coach asked the team’s management to sign a big name for the defense. That’s why Liverpool signed Van Dijk from Sunderland. The Dutch player signed with Liverpool and the rest is history. Keep in mind that Van Dijk won everything with Liverpool. Firstly, Van Dijk won the Champions League in the final against Tottenham. Beforehand, they lost the final game of the CL against Real Madrid. Liverpool also won the Premier League after a few decades and it was possible because of good play from the defensive line. Van Dijk is definitely one of the most valuable and expensive defenders in the history of the Premier League.
