Jamie Carragher thinks that Fenway Sports Group’s move to look for fresh investment options is a sign that Jurgen Klopp has pushed for increased transfer market spending

Thursday’s 3-2 loss at Man City marked Liverpool’s return to competitive play, but questions about the club’s ownership remain.

FSG decided to put Liverpool “up for sale” last month, but it has since been emphasized that they are open to both a “strategic partner” and a full sale.

A demand from Klopp, according to Carragher, is likely what led FSG to decide to seek funding before Thursday’s game at the Etihad.

Whether it’s a sale or they require investment, it’s fascinating, Carragher stated on

“I believe there is no question that Jurgen Klopp has informed Liverpool’s owners that he needs £250 million to spend this summer. While that sum may seem exorbitant, it was what Man United and Chelsea spent the previous summer.

These are the amounts that the teams Liverpool competes with spend, and I believe that only once during Jurgen Klopp’s tenure has Liverpool really pushed the envelope in the transfer market: right after the Champions League final (in 2018), when they acquired a large number of players. I believe that this is what Liverpool needs right now.

You’re talking about that kind of investment, and I doubt that FSG now has those assets. As a result, they’re looking for outside investment to assist them.

Even if Jude Bellingham and Enzo Fernandez are still being linked to Liverpool, it’s unclear whether the club could actually afford to sign both players under the existing ownership structure.

Despite the fact that both Liverpool and Man United are up for sale, Carragher continued by asserting that FSG has done “a tremendous job” since they took control in 2010, and that the ownership position at his previous club is distinct from that at Old Trafford.

There has been some criticism of the club’s owners for not investing more money, but when they first took over, they made no claims to be as wealthy as Roman Abramovich or as successful as Man City, the speaker added.

“It was properly managing the club and using the funds Liverpool brought into the organization.

“That’s what they did, and they did a tremendous job; they hired Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool won the league, advanced to three Champions League finals, and now they have a newly renovated stadium and training facility.

“They’ve done an excellent job, FSG, but can they financially compete with the other teams? No. And for that reason, they require investment from a third party.
