Liverpool don’t need to sell anyone,Klopp warns Barca

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool don't need to sell anyone.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the club are under no pressure to sell Philippe Coutinho this summer.

The Merseysiders reporedly rejected a second bid from Catalan side Barcelona for the Brazilian on Wednesday night and Klopp insists that the player will not be going anywhere this summer.

The German told ‘Sky Germany’: “Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go. No price at which we are ready to give in.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.”

The former Borussia Dortmund boss said that nowadays, every player can be signed by another club, presumably referencing Neymar’s move to PSG but that at this moment in time, Liverpool were not in a position that would see them let their star man leave.

“Today, no player on the planet is untouchable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer,” he explained.

“Also you have to ask, if you have the time to react. But just because of one request of one club, we don’t have to think about that. We are not in that situation.”
