When asked whether he would be interested in signing Messi, Klopp replied: “Interest? Yeah, who doesn’t want Messi in their team.

“But no chance. The numbers are absolutely not for us. But….good player. It would make it even more difficult to beat them [Manchester City].

“For the Premier League, it would be great. I would like to see it but I’m not sure if I will.”
