Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that any football transfer now seems possible after Neymar’s move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG paid €222m for the privilege of fielding the Brazilian forward, leading Klopp to believe that intentionally unreasonable amounts, like Lionel Messi’s €300 million release clause, no longer seem unthinkable.

“It’s pretty simple. Until now it was simply seen as impossible,” Klopp told DAZN. “Then there is the list, with the release-clauses for Barcelona. Leo Messi, €300m.
“In a period of just a month that suddenly sounds possible too. That used to be an outrageous amount.
“They just set that amount randomly. I mean who would pay €300m? And now it simply happened.”
