Liverpool brought Salah to Anfield in June previous year for $49 million, and the Egyptian star is said to have sent a text message to Allison during the negotiations asking, 'What are you waiting for?'

"[The owners] were quite excited, so we did it", the Reds boss told his club's official website.

Referring to the fee paid by Liverpool, Klopp said: "I think it's something we have to do".

'Alisson? The market figures have changed, £65m for a goalkeeper happened for the first time and we couldn't say no.

I'm really happy with our signings to be honest, so now let's use the last few weeks to be as good as possible. "His English is surprisingly good and he is a real personality".


Pickford began his career with his local side Sunderland, where he impressed with a string of superb performances during the 2016/17 season, despite the Black Cats ultimately suffering relegation from the Premier League.

As soon as Liverpool's announcement about the record-breaking transfer came, Natália celebrated the move with a post.

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland hopes that Alisson Becker is the last piece of the jigsaw that sees the Reds emerge as Premier League title contenders.

Liverpool finished 25 points behind City in fourth place last term.

He has spent the past two seasons with Roma and played in 37 Serie A games during the 2017-18 campaign.


Virgil van Dijk's arrival in January vindicated the club's decision to keep their powder dry last summer, with Fabinho and Naby Keita following in this window.

"I tried to play my best for my team, trying to come second in the French league, but obviously you think about it".

"I understand the fans' view".

"The pre-season is very bad, the positive thing of the pre-season is only for the young boys that have a fantastic opportunity to train with us", the Man United manager explained.

Speaking after his side's 2-0 win at Blackburn Rovers, Klopp insisted he was "pretty sure" there would be no further incomings, and though this is open for debate a series of exits are now more likely.
