Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool spending: 'We are not in fantasy land'

Champions League winners Liverpool missed out on their first league title in 29 years last season - with City finishing one point ahead of them - after spending £113.35m on Naby Keita, Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri. The flipside of such heavy spending, however, has been that they have been unable to throw their weight around this summer, with teenagers Sepp van Den Berg and Harvey Elliott the only arrivals so far. Sorry. Everybody has to pay bills. "Now we have to work with that", he explained.

While signing players such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold to new deals over the past year or so has been good business, you would have still expected Liverpool to be trying to improve their squad a bit.

Arguably it would not have gone down well with most Reds supporters, who are itching to see the club sign quality players with time on their side.

Man City won the domestic treble this past season but they still went out and spent big-money on Rodri. We have contact, but not that close contact that I know exactly how he is doing, but the rest is only newspaper talk and stuff like that. Whatever they need, they do. "That is the situation". "I am not at all jealous!" he told reporters.

"But it's not anyone else's fault, the young lads or whatever who have come in, we've all not been good enough and maybe Bobby and Mo and people like that will give us the lift that we need". There is no guarantee we won't draw with Leicester on a snowy pitch because we make five new signings.

"But now it's up to us to put in the performances, we've got one more game before it gets competitive and we need to get up to speed now". And that is what we have to do. I'm pretty sure we will play better football and it's necessary as well. The estimated cost to bring Coutinho back to Anfield is between £80-100 million, depending on how much Barcelona still owe Liverpool for the original transfer.
