MUNICH — Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp is concerned about the prospect of Neymar moving to Paris Saint-Germain for a record transfer fee.
News agency dpa reported that Klopp said in Munich on Wednesday night: “I believe and hope that this is not the next step (trend). I think it will remain an exception.”
PSG would have to meet the cost of a buyout clause of 222 million euros ($262 million) to secure the Brazil star’s transfer from Barcelona.
Klopp said: “I thought ‘Financial Fair Play’ was invented so that something like this wasn’t possible.”
Klopp was in Munich for the Audi Cup pre-season tournament. Liverpool lost on penalties to Atletico Madrid in Wednesday’s final.
