Chelsea, owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, have spent round 200 million kilos ($259.88 million) to herald Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell, whereas Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr arrived on free transfers.

Premier League champions Liverpool, who completed 33 factors forward of Frank Lampard’s aspect final season, have signed solely left-again Konstantinos Tsimikas from Olympiakos Piraeus.

“We live in a world at the moment with a lot of uncertainty,” Klopp informed BBC. “For some clubs it’s less important how uncertain the future is: those owned by countries, oligarchs, that’s the truth. We’re a different kind of club.

“We cannot just change overnight and say, ‘So now we want to behave like Chelsea’. They are signing a lot of players. That can be an advantage but that means they have to fit together pretty quickly.
