Net spend, defined as the difference between money earned from player sales and the money spent on new recruits, is among the most-discussed topics of conversation among Liverpool fans. A sum of £75million was spent on Virgil van Dijk in January, for example, a world-record fee for a defender, but the Reds also cashed in on Philippe Coutinho in the same month, cancelling out that fee and then some. The thought process is simple: spending equals success. As Liverpool aim to progress one step further and go from top four members to title challengers, more arrivals are understandably perceived as potential catalysts. More recruits are set to follow Fabinho and Naby Keita in the coming weeks, the two reinforcements Jurgen Klopp has already brought in, with it highly unlikely there will be any high-profile, big-money departures.

The cashback offer on the Barclaycard is on the Platinum 25 … [Read more...] about Barclaycard will PAY you to transfer debts to balance transfer credit card – but is it any good?
ALREADY dreaming of getting away from the British winter and heading for the beach? If you're going anywhere abroad, it pays to get a specialist travel credit card - if you don't you could be hit with various hidden charges when you're getting a bit of sun. Why can't I use my normal credit card for spending overseas? You can - but if you do it's likely you'll be hit in the pocket with fees provider's charge you for using it overseas.

READ MORE - Liverpool fans hail Andy Robertson after Manchester City performanceAberdeen – Scott McKennaMcKenna’s rise to the first team is one of the biggest positives for Aberdeen this season.
