Real and Barca battle over Liverpool Jurgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk, Tammy Abraham wants to play for Nigeria

Real Madrid and Barcelona are ready to battle over a potential "mammoth double deal" for Liverpool pair Jurgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk, according to the Star. 

The Merseyside club's manager and centre-back have been vital in their rise to becoming one of Europe's top sides. Liverpool have reached the last two Champions League final, lifting the elite trophy in the Spanish capital last May. The Premier League side are unlikely to consider any incoming bids for their superstars.
*** It's unsurprising that Barcelona and Real Madrid are looking to employ a coach like Klopp. The German is viewed as one of the best managers in world football and his long-term projects at Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool have proven this. The signing of Van Dijk for a then-world record fee for a defender completely revolutionised the Liverpool team, taking them to the next level. Barca and Real have both looked fairly flat in the last couple of years so an injection like the Dutch defender could well be needed. However, Liverpool are a massive club and are fully focused on winning the Premier League so it would be difficult to see either of them leaving any time soon. 

Abraham unsure of international future 
21-year-old Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham has refused to rule out an international team switch from England to Nigeria. Goal have reported that the Chelsea striker has left the door open to play for Nigeria, his parents' home country, by admitting "you can never say never" when asked about potentially playing for the Super Eagles in the future. Abraham has featured twice for the senior England team, but both outings were in friendly matches, meaning he is able to switch allegiances.
