Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has fired a warning to Manchester United ahead of Tuesday’s pre-season game in Thailand.

“Usually football matches are the most important thing for us. But in this specific case it’s really more for the people,” Jurgen Klopp said ahead of the game against Manchester United, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“We have 37 players – all generations here – and we have to use all of them. The boys who were on international duty in the summer only arrived today pretty much. They cannot play too long but we will try to give them a few minutes as well.

“Manchester United. New manager. Trained a little bit longer than us. Not sure, but might be in a better situation in the moment. We see it as an important test because it’s against United – and we don’t play friendlies!”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are ready to hijack a deal between Ajax and Dutch striker Brian Brobbey after Erik ten Hag contacted his former player recently, according to The Times.

The 20-year-old striker is under contract at RB Leipzig but has no future with the Bundesliga side.

RB Leipzig value him at around £17million but are willing to accept around £13million for the 20 year old striker.

With Edinson Cavani leaving Manchester United this summer and the future of Cristiano Ronaldo uncertain, Ten Hag wants to strengthen his attack and is ready to reunite with Brobbey at Manchester United.

Brobbey has played 23 Eredivisie games under Ten Hag, scoring ten goals. His speed and bulky stature at 5ft 9in give him an advantage against many centre halves on the ground.

He is great at finding pockets inside the box and converting passes coming from the wing as well from midfielders behind him.
