Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sends transfer warning to new potential owner as FSG eye sale

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sends transfer warning to new potential owner as FSG eye sale

Jurgen Klopp feels that potential additional investment at Liverpool might transform the club’s ability to compete with the top clubs in the transfer market.

After owners Fenway Sports Group made it plain that they would be open to sell a portion of the club, Liverpool’s manager stated that he is okay with the potential of fresh money entering Anfield.

And he asserted that it would allow them to pursue signings that were previously out of reach.

Liverpool has made no secret of their intention to bring England midfielder Jude Bellingham to Anfield next summer, when he is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund.

With Manchester City, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid all expressing interest, the initial bids in a bidding war might reach £100 million.

Klopp would welcome the opportunity to compete in future markets, and he believes that any new investment in the club would be beneficial.

“In the structure we had, we were obviously able to spend money, but we always had to look and say ‘what did we earn?’ That was always the situation, it was clear,” he said.

“The two biggest transfers we did in the past with Alisson and Virgil van Dijk (for a combined £130m) and we all know how it happened: we got some money from Barcelona (£135m for Phillipe Coutinho) and spent it wisely, I would say.

“How we did it so far brought us to where we are. But fresh money is no mistake, let me say it like this. Nothing gets cheaper, and not only because of the inflation rate.

“Sometimes you have to spend. We are really happy to give all our young kids a chance, and I’m so positive about the impact they will have in the future.

“But around it you have to, from time to time, thrown in proven quality. And in an ideal world, they are young as well, and not 35.”
