Jurgen Klopp: 'Neymar transfer a warning to Barcelona'

300m for Messi seems possible, says Klopp

'R4.7bn For Messi Is Possible'

"It's pretty simple. Until now it was simply seen as impossible", Klopp told DAZN, as quoted on FourFourTwo. Leo Messi, €300 million.

"Then there is the list, with the release-clauses for Barcelona. And now it simply happened". "No coach would demand such a thing".

The Brazilian, who became the world's most expensive footballer after Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona £200m for his signature last week, wants to put the two-year legal battle behind him as he prepares for a new life in France. But PSG has done so even though Spanish football authorities refused to facilitate the payment, in the belief that it might breach "financial fair play" rules created to prevent clubs spending beyond their means. A simple solution would be a rule.

The Catalan club have money in the bank and clubs have duly taken advantage of the Neymar transfer fee to increase the transfer value of their own players, which is why they are struggling to sign players such as Dembele.

"That's what I like about this sport".
