As for Dias, the £ 65 million Manchester City defender (Sky Sports) could walk the same path as Liverpool’s flawless Dutchman in helping his side become European champions.

Last night, Dias put on a Man of the Match display as Pep Guardiola’s men swiftly passed their oil-rich rivals at PSG to book their trip to Istanbul.

And Carragher praised the performance of Dias, who believes that he is now part of a “new generation” of high-quality center-backs, alongside that of Liverpool.

“I love him,” Carragher said. “I think he was the best player in the Premier League this season. I think it has had a great effect on Manchester City.

“Even when he talks and you watch him play. You can’t believe I’m 23, when you’re a center back and a great center-back and he’s a great center-back, the greats just don’t play their own game. They almost play other people’s game.

“You have two of the best center-backs of their generation, hopefully playing (Chelsea – Real Madrid) in Thiago Silva and Ramos. They come towards the end if you want. We have seen Van Dijk in recent years win the Champions League. I think the new generation is coming.

“The most important thing for a center-back, in terms of body position, I think he’s the best by far in the Premier League.

By comparing him to Van Dijk and if he can get to his level: “Definitely,” Carragher replied. “I think in his first season he produced in Man City. I think it’s at that level. I don’t think I am blessed with the physical attributes of Van Dijk. So in a way, I’m more impressed with Dias.

“When you look at Van Dijk, it’s like looking at a Rolls-Royce, you just think about the way it moves. Most players don’t have that. And Dias probably didn’t get it. Therefore, you will probably have to concentrate more and be by his side constantly.

Dias’s impact on this Man City team has been remarkable and with the Premier League title in the bag, added with the League Cup, those comparisons can be made to Van Dijk.

Of course, there will be debates about who is better, but both have had a huge impact on their respective clubs, but it must be remembered that the European trophy is not in the hands of Man City yet.

Real Madrid and Chelsea will meet in London tonight and if Thomas Tuchel can help his team progress, much like Liverpool’s Champions League triumph in Madrid, it will be an all-English final once again.
