Liverpool in line to recoup £100m as Jurgen Klopp oversees squad cull

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could see up to £100m reinvested back into the squad this summer through the sales of fringe players.

The German tactician has already been busy in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Loris Karius, Joel Matip and Sadio Mane to strengthen his squad.

However, he is also managing finances well and could ultimately end up with more money to spend through the sales of players that no longer feature in his plans.

As reported by The Daily Mail, that figure could even reach £100m by the end of the summer, with Joe Allen’s £13.5m move to Stoke City the first of many possible departures in the next fortnight.

Brad Smith is expected to move to Bournemouth in a deal worth £6m, as noted by The Mail, while Jordon Ibe, Martin Skrtel, Jerome Sinclair and several others have already all left the club at a total of over £50m.

The biggest transfer that this theory all hinges on is Christian Benteke, who according to The Mail could make a £30m move to Crystal Palace ahead of the upcoming season.

Despite a desire to stay, the Belgian international could be moving on this summer after failing to make the desired impact last season following his big-money move from Aston Villa.

In turn, he’ll likely form the biggest part of that possible transfer war-chest, while the likes of Mario Balotelli and Lazar Markovic could also be on their way out which in turn will help Liverpool set a new record for money brought in over the course of one transfer window.

It remains to be seen whether or not Klopp receives all the money involved to pump back into the team, as he’ll also be under pressure from the club hierarchy to ensure that they continue to move forward by making astute financial decisions too.

Either way, provided that he brings success on the pitch with his decisions, it will be considered a very successful summer transfer market.
