Klopp coy on FSG talks as midfielder sale is confirmed – Latest Liverpool FC News

Two days on from a day to forget in Brighton, Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media ahead of Tuesday’s FA Cup third round replay at Wolves.


What does the boss know that we don’t?

Plenty of talk about Qatar buying Liverpool on Twitter, but that speculation is unfounded.

On Sunday, the Telegraph‘s Sam Wallace reported that one is “expected next month” but failed to hint at who or where the bid is to come from.

And Klopp told reporters on Monday that “yes” he has been speaking with Liverpool’s owners since news broke of their wish to find new investment, “but nothing for you actually [to know].”

“I was thinking about what I could tell you about that, eh, nothing,” Klopp said with a grin.

There have been interested suitors from Saudi Arabia, Germany, the United States and Qatar, and it’s the latter that has sparked social media into life over the last 24 hours.

Speculation is that a deal is in the works in Qatar and as is often the case online, it has quickly escalated into ITKs (in the know) using the handshake and eyes emojis.

Various outlets in Qatar have not even whispered a word of it and while it is a possible avenue, a reliable and credible source has yet to back up the online rumours.
