When Neymar was bought by Barcelona from Santos of Brazil in 2013, a £200 million break clause was inserted in his contract in the belief that no club in the world could possibly afford to buy him out.

The fee that took Neymar to Paris was more than double the £89.3 million Manchester United paid to re-sign Paul Pogba from Juventus last summer, the previous world transfer record.

But with Neymar gone, they are set to launch a decisive move for the player. "And now it simply happened".

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.

"I don't even know if this is right", Klopp said.

Some might argue there are few players out there of Neymar's talent who could fight to match his valuation, although it seems inevitable the transfer itself will act as a landmark in dictating the cost of future deals. A simple solution would be a rule.

"The biggest clubs can decide on that, where they would want to set a limit". €150 million or €550 million, or whatever, and then no one would complain anymore. "This gives us the chance to sign new players that will keep us competitive".

With PSG now reportedly after Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, Klopp has warned the top clubs that the highly-inflated release clauses of many players will be triggered much more often.

"I love football, because you make each other stronger", the German added.

According to a report in Spanish publication Sport, Angel Di Maria is the subject of interest from Barcelona, who are scouring for replacement for Neymar.
