Graeme Souness told the Irish Independent that Liverpool need to be worried about losing players to Barcelona and Real Madrid.

He said: “The worry for Liverpool going forward is not Man City having all that firepower to spend but someone coming in for Salah, which I think they will too, Mane too, they will be high on the list of Real Madrid.

“Liverpool are in great shape, I wouldn’t be worried about them.”

Now, after winning the Champions League and finishing on 97 points in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp will be able to enjoy his holiday with the knowledge that his best players aren’t going anywhere.
