Since Jurgen Klopp came over as manager, Liverpool has been far more efficient in the transfer market than Manchester City and Manchester United.

Klopp revealed on Friday that he would leave Liverpool at the end of the season, admitting that he had run out of energy.

Since taking over at Anfield, Klopp has won every title available to him save the Europa League. The German guided the Reds to a Champions League victory in 2018/19, and a year later, they won their first Premier League trophy in 30 years.

Klopp also spent £75million and £66million respectively for Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker respectively, both of whom transformed the Reds into a title-challenging outfit.

While Klopp has spent £807million on players during his time in charge, they have recouped significant funds via player sales, particularly the £140million departure of Philippe Coutinho.

Klopp’s overall net spend has been dwarfed by Liverpool’s rivals, with Manchester City having a net spend of £ 692.3 million between 2015 to 2024.

The Citizens have completed a league, FA Cup, and Champions League triple during that span, in addition to winning five Premier League championships.

Arsenal and Chelsea have spent a combined £696.2 million and £835.7 million over the last nine years, while Manchester United has spent a net of £888 million.
