Liverpool beat Chelsea to Virgil Van Dijk transfer by paying over the odds, claims Antonio Conte

‘This is life. For sure he as our target but as you know this is football. We can have a lot of targets but you must be able to reach those targets. The transfer market is not simple for any club.

So at least we know for certain that Conte does put forward to whoever is in charge of buying/selling big name,money players and not just putting up players with potential or recovering injurred.

And the same thing is happening with Sandro.

Van dijk isn’t our mistake. He always wanted Liverpool.  Even if we made a 80m£ he would have chosen  Liverpool without a doubt (see what happened with man city)

Shame we missed out on VvD. He's been absolutely sensational so far this season, best player in the league in the past two weeks

Well, given our recent transfer windows... personally I don’t have much hope. Fair play to you if you do. I do hope we change. 

Revisiting this...what do you think now? :ph34r:

Meh. It's only 2 games in for goodness sake. He may be a good defender but it's hardly catastrophic we didn't get him. As someone said above, he's always wanted Liverpool and had Conte gotten his way with Van Dijk, we might not have seen Christensen break into the starting XI!

Unfortunately, Luiz looks to have taken AC's place as a starter, grrrrrrrr

VDK is probably better than any defender we currently have (Andrea's potential aside). He was always a good player. The questions were around around his injuries and fitness level. Still early days, but it seems he has been able to remain fit for long periods of time.

The fee was excessive for position we didn't necessarily need strengthening in Jan. Certainly not losing any sleep about his performances.

Only happened because of Sarri. If we still had Conte, at least Eden, Courtois and Willian probably be with us anymore.

Not having Willian might have been a good thing if this season turns out the way its heading.

Pedro has made the LW spot his own and as soon as Edens fit enough for 90 mins we wont see him on the field unless for injuries.

And hes stopping CHO getting any game time which really isn't good with CHOs contract ending next summer!!

Yeah but take what was said at that time in context. It was said under the premise that Conte would still be manager.

Which is why you have to pray a lot. :P
