Manchester: Jose Mourinho has mischievously highlighted the changing view of Jurgen Klopp after his Liverpool counterpart spent £75 million to sign Southampton's Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk this week.

The Manchester United manager suggested yesterday that if he were a member of the media, he would ask Klopp about his comments, 18 months ago, when the German claimed he would not want to spend huge amounts.

At that time, Klopp was responding to United's breaking of the world record by paying £89 million for Paul Pogba. "I think the one that speaks about it in a specific way has to be Jurgen," said Mourinho ahead of Southampton's trip to Old Trafford today. "And if I was one of you I would ask him about his comments. But I'm not speaking about that case because in Liverpool they do what they want to do and I am nobody to comment on what they do. The reality is that if they they want the player they pay this amount or they don't have the player because that is the way the market is."
