In 2017 the centre back signed a contract with Liverpool that nets him a whopping salary of 10.3 Million Euro (9.3 Million Pound) per year. We have crunched the numbers, this means he earns €28,142 (£25,295) per day and €1,173 (£1,054) per hour!
Since you've been viewing this page, Virgil van Dijk has earned...
Wow! This means the average man in the UK needs to work for at least 25.7 years to earn the same as The Dyke earns in only 1 month.
The salary of the Dutch centre back compared to his Liverpool teammates
He has been playing in the Premier League for quite a while now and we all know that the salaries in that particular competition are sky-high. After having made the move from Southampton to Liverpool he started to really earn boatloads of cash. Right now we estimate that his net worth is about 19 Million Euro (17 Million Pound). His Market Value is obviously enourmous, but we think that it is actually higher than his latest transfer might suggest. Many see him as the very best defender in the world and were he to make yet another transfer we think that the fee will be higher than 83 Million Euro. At the moment we think his Market Value is about 110 Million Euro (98 Million Pound).

Mother - Hellen
His mother Hellen has been the most important person for Virgil when he was growing up. (Image: Thesun.co.uk)
Father - Ron
His father Ron had left the family after he and Hellen divorced. He was not in touch with the player untill he started earning big money, as a result the centre back does not want to play with his last name on his shirt. Ouch.. (Image: Thesun.co.uk)

A big defender deserves a big car and that is exactly what he is driving. This very expensive and big Mercedes lets him drive around in style. (Image: Dailystar.co.uk)
House - Where does he live?

He is a defender who plays as a centre back for Liverpool in the English Premier League. The Dutchman is widely regarded as one of the very best defenders on the world and the scousers agree with that, given the fact that they paid Southampton a whopping 83 Million Euro (75 Million Pound) to take over Virgil's services. This not only made him the most expensive defender of all time but also the most expensive Dutch player of all time. So far he has absolutely lived up to his price-tag. He immediately started playing as a starter and since he joined the team in 2018 he has been the leader at the back and one of the reasons for Liverpool's very good results. He started his career at the youth-team of Willem 2 in Tilburg, the Netherlands. He later joined Dutch side Groningen before making the move overseas to Scottish club Celtic. There he really started to make a name for himself, which eventually earned him a transfer to Southampton. He is also the captain of the Dutch national team 'Oranje'. He has played a whole bunch of international games already but as of yet he has never made it to a World Cup or European Cup. He did score a few goals for Oranje though, most notably the goal versus Germany that won the Dutch a point and made them go through the Nations League Finals.
