Jurgen Klopp aims another dig at Manchester City's spending

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits they are unable to compete with the financial muscle of Manchester City in the transfer market.

Klopp prepared Liverpool fans not to expect any major signings in the summer transfer window after breaking records in the previous year to land Virgil van Dijk and Alisson. Liverpool went on to win the Champions League, but the Reds are yet to make a high profile signing having only added young defender Sepp van den Berg.

In an interview with the club's official portal, Klopp hit out at the spending of City, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, "It will not be the biggest transfer window of LFC. We invested a lot in the team in the last two years, I would say. We cannot spend every year in the same manner.

"People talk about it like, ‘Now another £300m or £200m’. There are maybe only two clubs in the world – it looks in the moment like Barcelona and [Real] Madrid can do the same – City and PSG that can do it every year.

"But we are fine. I’m happy with the team, we are really happy. We have to see if we find maybe one position if we find something for it, but there’s no real pressure because it’s not about signing a player. We have solutions for all situations."
