Are Liverpool about to spend big again this summer? Liverpool will no doubt look to retain their Champions League title and secure a first Premier League title in years as they head into the 2019 – 2020 season.
Speaking to German broadcaster ZDF about his Pogba comments, he said: “Back when I was in Germany, Bayern had a bottomless pit of money, like £100m.
“In today’s market, that gets you one centre-back. So this bottomless pit of money is enough to buy one player in today’s world and that doesn’t even cover their wages.
“The market has changed more than I expected, but I stand by what I said.
“Maybe things were lost in translation but my point was, if we reach a point where football is solely about money and not football, then I’m leaving; and I still feel the same way about it.
“Liverpool is an ambitious club and if we didn’t spend the same amount of money as others, we wouldn’t be able to compete. Everybody’s splashing the cash, so we have to do the same.”
