Lionel Messi €300M Transfer Discussed by Jurgen Klopp After Neymar's PSG Move

"It's pretty simple. Until now it was simply seen as impossible", Klopp told DAZN (via Goal).

While a 300 million euro sum seems outlandish, Klopp feels that the post Neymar transfer market is different.

From the point of view of FC Barcelona, the Brazilian national player did not stick to the then-made agreements. "And now it simply happened".

"I don't even know if this is right", Klopp said. But PSG has done so even though Spanish football authorities refused to facilitate the payment, in the belief that it might breach "financial fair play" rules created to prevent clubs spending beyond their means.

PSG smashed the previous world record fee paid by Manchester United for Paul Pogba a year ago after agreeing to stump up €222m to free the Brazil star from his Barca contract. A simple solution would be a rule.

Inflation has risen 1.7 per cent over the past 12 months, suggesting that inflation pressures remain well under control. Trump's comments sparked a late afternoon selling on Tuesday, with the Dow ending a nine-day streak of closing records.

"If he decides to remain at the club, we will have a great player and if he leaves we will get his whole buyout clause paid in full". €150 million or €550 million, or whatever, and then no one would complain anymore.

Barca, who have five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi on their books, and LaLiga have threatened to report PSG under the Financial Fair Play rules. He never looked the same player after his house was burgled and he eventually departed Old Trafford after just one season as Manchester United's latest flop to wear the number seven shirt.

"You can develop a team".

"That's what I like about this sport". Suffice to add that Neymar's contracts are brokered by his father - and that both Neymars are reportedly under investigation by tax authorities, as was Barcelona after the transfer from Santos.
