Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has taken a thinly-veiled swipe at Manchester United’s transfer policy.
The Old Trafford club are looking to re-sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in a deal worth a reported £100m.
And Klopp does not think that kind of transfer fee is good for the game.
“The best player of the last season is good to know but it is more interesting trying to find out who will be the best one next year.” he said.
“If you knew it now, that would be a really cool transfer. It would be much cheaper too.
“That is what we work for. It is about finding the players who can make the next step with us.
“If you bring one player in for £100million or whatever, and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney.
“The day that this is football, I’m not in a job any more, because the game is about playing together.
“If I spend money, it is because I am trying to build a team, a real team.” he finished.
