Messi to sign for Liverpool? No chance, says Klopp
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are one of the favourites to sign the six-times world player of the year
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp says he would be interested in adding Barcelona captain Lionel Messi to his Premier League-winning squad but a deal is out of the question due to the astronomical amount of money involved.
Messi stunned world soccer earlier this week when he expressed his desire to leave Barcelona after nearly two decades with the Catalan club.
When asked if he would be happy to bring the Argentine forward to Anfield, Klopp said: "Interest? Yeah, who doesn't want Messi in their team.
"But no chance. The numbers are absolutely not for us. But... good player."
A study by French newspaper L'Equipe earlier this year said Messi earns 8.2 million euros per month from Barca, way more than Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Paris St Germain striker Neymar, who earn 4.5 million and 3 million respectively.
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are one of the favourites to sign the six-times world player of the year who has won every major title with Barcelona.
Some of Messi's best moments on the Camp Nou pitch came under the guidance of former Barca coach Guardiola, whose City side finished 18 points behind Liverpool in a distant second-place last season.
"It would make it even more difficult to beat them (City)," Klopp told a news conference ahead of Saturday's Community Shield match between Liverpool and Arsenal at Wembley.
"For the Premier League, it would be great. I would like to see it but I'm not sure if I will."
Klopp confirmed centre back Virgil van Dijk is fit to face Arsenal after recovering from a head injury sustained during Liverpool's pre-season friendly with RB Salzburg.
"Virgil looks fine, he looks not good because he has the cut there, but apart from that it should be fine," Klopp added.
