'Oblak would have cost £89million' - Klopp defends Alisson outlay

Karius' exhibitions in pre-season have now angered a set of Kops and many supporters have urged Klopp to sell the 25-year-old before the transfer window closes.

Fowler is enthused by the signing, but has sought to cool Liverpool fans' expectations, writing, "Signing, Brazil's World Cup keeper - who is joined by fellow Brazilian Fabinho - puts down a marker", in his Daily Mirror column.

The Instagram user also added that signing Fekir would be the icing on the cake and she liked the comment.

That being said, I'm not about to let anyone dampen my spirits as I am a firm believer in allowing myself to get swept away by every single transfer rumour I stumble across. The thing is I saw the ref taking charge of big games at the World Cup afterwards and nobody really thinks about that later. If VAR is coming then it is a situation where you have to look again and say: 'What is that?' It was ruthless.

The boss stated that Liverpool's spending would be the record for the current Premier League season and that they must now win a trophy, something they have not been able to do for a long time.

Two games into the pre-season in the US, Manchester United are already in the middle of a monumental crisis - or so it would appear if you came across Jose Mourinho speak to the cameras in a sunny Los Angeles, where Manchester United have their training base located.

With the new signings complementing a squad that is already pretty good there will be several players who won't be needed next season and it will be imperative that Klopp offloads them before the campaign gets underway.

"It is like we, the world out there, accepts that you use each weapon to win the game".

"There is no doubt about his quality, if Daniel Sturridge is fit, he will play a role in the team, 100 per cent. The day that this is football, I'm not in a job any more". How can people be happy like that? "That's the insane part of the world, obviously, but we all are not really bothered about it as long as we are not involved".

"I always said there is a future, it's about what we do at the moment".
