Liverpool have spent a massive amount this year but they have no plans to match Neymar’s €222m price tag, says Jurgen KloppThe Brazilian superstar completed a shock world-record €222m transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain last summer in order to aid the French side’s hopes of landing a first Champions League crown.Meanwhile, Liverpool have spent a combined total of £163.98m on the likes of Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson this summer.The Reds were determined to bolster their squad in order to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.But, unlike PSG, Klopp insists that Liverpool still have some control over their finances and won’t recklessly lavish out on any potential star recruits.“No chance, no chance, no chance,” replied the Liverpool boss, when asked of the club owners sanctioning a Neymar-like fee (via ESPN).“We are not owned by a state like it’s the case at two big clubs. We have our limits.”Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.On whether owners Fenway Sports Group would fulfil his every transfer wish, Klopp said: “No. We have a conservative leadership.”He added: “It feels like €100m back then is €500m today. When Neymar joined PSG for €222m, I shook myself.“Back then I had an opinion, but an incredible lot has happened since. In 2017, Neymar joined Paris, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele joined Barcelona for a lot of money, and Kylian Mbappe [joined] Paris.“This opened the whole thing, the money’s on the market. Now, if Liverpool wants a player, the other clubs want a bit of the cake too. That’s the story.“And you must also keep in mind that players like Mo Salah, Sadio Mane or Robert Firmino, players we bought for €30m to €40m, have a different value on the transfer market these days. That’s part of the business.”Liverpool signed Virgil van Dijk for over £70m in January to make him the world’s most expensive defender, while Alisson briefly held the mantle of the most expensive goalkeeper before Chelsea signed Kepa Arrizabalaga for £71m.
