Virgil van Dijk has insisted that there is no animosity between himself and Harry Maguire, who broke the Liverpool defender's world record transfer fee when he joined Manchester United.

Van Dijk became the most expensive defender of all-time when he joined Liverpool from Southampton for £75 million ($98m) in January 2018.

The Netherlands international has justified that huge price tag since his arrival at Anfield, helping the club win a sixth European Cup while also picking up UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup winners' medals.

He did, however, see his record beaten when Maguire left Leicester City to join United for £80 million ($104m) back in August, and the England centre-back has quickly proven his leadership qualities in order to earn the captain's armband at Old Trafford.

The two men will come up against each other for the second time this season when United travel to Anfield on Sunday, with Liverpool looking to protect a 38-game unbeaten run while moving another step closer to a first league title in 30 years.

When asked if he was disappointed to see Maguire's transfer fee gazump his own ahead of the heavyweight Premier League clash, Van Dijk told reporters: "No, good luck to him.
