From January 2018 Klopp's side added to his squad with some excellent quality with Virgil van Dijk joining from Liverpool, Alisson moving to Liverpool from Roma, Fabinho coming in from Monaco, Naby Keita joining from RB Leipzig, after agreeing his move the year before, and Xherdan Shaqiri coming in from Stoke City.

The additions to the squad certainly helped as Liverpool went from Champions League runners up and finishing 25 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City to winning in Europe and finishing just one point behind City.

Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid will certainly be feeling pretty bad about their success on the pitch considering how much money they've spent.

Lionel Messi and co may have won La Liga last season but the lack of European success, followed by this season's issues, suggests money wasn't well spent.

Their rivals Real fared even worse by not winning a single trophy and being knocked out of the Champions League at the last 16 stage by Ajax.

And Untied certainly didn't get any bang from their buck, finishing outside the top four and having to replace Jose Mourinho part way through the season.

Arsenal fans will also be pulling their hair out seeing their side inside the top 10 as they've barely been in the top 10 best sides in the Premier League at times this season.

Which team are getting the best out of their money?
