Liverpool: Fans react to statistic about net spending under Jurgen Klopp - Liverpool

Plenty of Liverpool fans have been reacting to a statistic on Twitter which shows the club’s net spending since June 2016.

By contrast, Manchester City have a net spend of £505.6m since 2015, with Manchester United the next highest on £378.9m. [via Transfer League]

In addition to major signings, though, the Reds have also recouped plenty in player sales, most notably the £142m banked for Philippe Coutinho (as per BBC), along with other outward deals such as £20m for Danny Ings (The Telegraph), £19m for Dominic Solanke (BBC) and £15m for Jordon Ibe (BBC).
