Celtic set for Â£7m windfall if Virgil van Dijk joins Manchester City
City are understood to be lining up a bid of around £70 million for the Dutch defender, according to The Times.
Pep Guardiola is keen to bolster his backline with the capture of the former Groningen centre half.
If van Dijk does join City, the Hoops could earn up to £7 million thanks to the sell-on clause included in his £10 million move to Southampton.
Van Dijk was on Liverpool’s radar during the summer, but a bid from the Anfield side was knocked back and the Dutch international ended up staying at St Mary’s.
The defender has returned to the Saints first team but is almost certain to be on the way out next month.
He has been linked with a string of clubs including Arsenal and Chelsea.
