Klopp is urging FSG to sign 'special' player for Liverpool, he's fighting to make transfer happen - journalist

Jurgen Klopp is said to be ‘fighting’ with Liverpool owners FSG to release the money to sign Jude Bellingham.

The race for the coveted 19-year-old is now well underway, with a summer move looking certain to happen. And as per journalist Christian Falk, Klopp is pushing the Reds owners to do everything possible to bring him to Anfield.

“Jurgen Klopp is fighting in his club for the owners to give him the money for Bellingham,” Falk told Give Me Sport. “He would like to have him in his team.

“But they have to be careful because Real Madrid are also a very nice club and they were early to the table. If they pay the amount and Dortmund says ‘they pay more than Liverpool’, then Liverpool would have a problem.”

Klopp pushing to get Bellingham onboard

The money involved in a deal to sign Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund has always been talked about as being enormous. That’s only right, we suppose. According to Michael Owen, and may others, the England man is a ‘special’ player.

But, somehow, it feels as though it won’t be the major deciding factor for the player himself.

Are Dortmund really going to simply sell their star player to the highest bidder? Of course, that’s how these things usually work. But with a transfer fee so big, are they really going to block a club if they offer £10m or £20m less?

Say, if Bellingham had his heart set on a move to Liverpool. You’d hope that the two clubs could come to an agreement, even if Madrid or Manchester City were offering more.

Maybe that’s naïve. It really seems as though Bellingham himself will have the final say here, though.

According to Falk yesterday, if it is a straightforward footballing decision, then Liverpool will win this race.

It will still take a fee far bigger than anything the Reds have previously paid, though. As a result, perhaps FSG are just dragging their heels a little.

So, it’s vital that Klopp hammers home the importance such a deal could have for the club. With the team in decline and a regeneration badly needed, the owners have to back the manager. Keep fighting, Jurgen.
