Jurgen Klopp reportedly doesn't think he needs lots of money to spend in every transfer window.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
According to The Mirror, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is in talks over a new contract with the club - despite only being appointed back in October.
Klopp, 49, was appointed as Brendan Rodgers' replacement at Anfield back in October, and arrived with quite the reputation from his time at Borussia Dortmund.
The German had won two Bundesliga titles with Dortmund as well as taking them to the 2013 Champions League final, making him one of the most highly-related managers in the world as a result.
Having left Dortmund at the end of the 2014/15 season, Klopp took some time out of management before heading to Liverpool in October 2015, and ended the campaign with just 12 defeats in 52 games and a Europa League final appearance to his name.
Now, just nine months after arriving at Anfield, Klopp is already in talks over a new deal with the club, as Liverpool officials want to keep Klopp beyond 2019, when his contract could expire if the Reds activate a one-year option in his deal.
Klopp is believed to be keen on the idea of extending his deal already, as he shares a vision with the Fenway Sports Group, who own the club.
It's claimed that Klopp's view on the club's transfer budgets in years to come is that he doesn't need huge money to spend every year, and wants to nurture young talent at the club - which is just what FSG are looking for.
This summer, Klopp managed to land defender Joel Matip on a free transfer, and snapped up goalkeeper Loris Karius for just £4.3m according to The Independent, but did then splash £34m on Southampton's Sadio Mane, as claimed by BBC Sport.
That's one huge purchase for Klopp so far, but looking back at his time at Dortmund, he took players like Lukasz Piszczek, Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Ilkay Gundogan, Shinji Kagawa and Robert Lewandowski in low-cost deals, and turned them into stars - and Liverpool will be hoping for a similar record from Klopp at Anfield.
