Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken out about the club’s decision to drop their pursuit of Jude Bellingham..
Liverpool have abandoned their pursuit of Bellingham, according to the ECHO, after the magnitude of their required summer midfield overhaul became clear.
When asked about his club’s decision for the first time on Friday morning, Klopp said, “To be honest, there’s nothing to say about it.” Why would I talk about signing or not signing players if we don’t talk about it?”
The Liverpool manager then added, “It’s not about Jude Bellingham.” I’ve never understood why we’re always talking about things we theoretically can’t have.
You must recognize your abilities. It’s all about what you’re capable of, and you work with that.
You must make do with what you have. We are not youngsters. You wouldn’t tell a five-year-old that he wants a Ferrari for Christmas and then say, “That’s a good idea.” It’s too costly, and you can’t drive it.
Whatever we need and want, we try everything to get it, but there are times when you have to accept it’s not possible and step back and do something else.
For much of the season, the Reds had made Bellingham their top transfer target, with Klopp a long-time admirer of the 19-year-talent. old’s
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, has paid more than £100 million for the England international.
As a result of that price tag, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp and the club’s recruitment team have determined that it would be better to spread the money across several signings rather than committing the majority to a single big-money arrival.
According to the Sportsacer, Liverpool want to sign at least two midfielders this summer, with Chelsea’s Mason Mount – who is nearing the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge and would thus be significantly cheaper than Bellingham – emerging as the new priority.
Liverpool is also considering another Chelsea midfielder, Conor Gallagher, as well as Matheus Nunes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Ryan Gravenberch of Bayern Munich.
