REVEALED: Liverpool risk dressing room harmony with De Ligt deal

Liverpool risk dressing room harmony if they sign Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt.

The Mirror says Liverpool will have to tear-up their wage structure to sign rising Dutch star De Ligt.

That's the message from De Ligt's controversial agent Mino Raiola, who is at the centre of a bidding war involving SIX leading clubs including Jurgen Klopp's newly-crowned European kings and Premier League champions Manchester City.

Manchester United are reportedly offering £236,000 a week and French champions Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to go even higher — £256k per week.

With Salah currently being paid £200,000 a week and Van Dijk only £150k, Klopp knows he'd be inviting dressing-room trouble by handing De Ligt better wages than his experienced stars.

The youngster is is set to make a key announcement on his future this week, with Spanish champs Barcelona still believing they are favourites and German kings Bayern Munich also waiting in the wings.
