To make another run at the Premier League and defeat Manchester City for the title in 2022, money Liverpool spent this season is $125 million during the summer transfer window.

While Sadio Mane has left for Bayern Munich, Mohamed Salah has signed a new three-year agreement with the Reds, easing fears that he, too, may go. The 30-year-old Mane departed after six years at Anfield to replace the departing Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich. Lewandowski is now playing for Barcelona. In contrast, Klopp's squad had already signed Mane's replacement before the Senegalese international announced his departure.

Darwin Nunez

The sale of Mane to Bavaria was made possible by the June agreement of a $93 million transfer price for Darwin Nunez from Benfica. Before deciding to sign with Reds this summer, the Uruguayan international was linked to moves to Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Manchester United. However, this $93 million charge will only be paid if certain additional conditions are met. Nunez cost Reds a reported $73 million upfront.

The transfer sum paid by the Reds to get Nunez, 23, surpassed the amount paid by the club to Southampton for Virgil van Dijk. In the 2021-22 season, Nunez scored 32 goals for Benfica across all competitions. This included goals in both legs of their Champions League quarterfinal matchup against the Reds. He signed a new five-year contract with the club to keep him at Anfield until 2027.

After netting ten goals and helping on another eight for Fulham in the Championship last year, Carvalho was signed for $6.5 million. Carvalho signed a five-year contract after an impressive preseason, just like Nunez.
