The German made some comments when Paul Pogba signed for Manchester United for £89m two years ago, which do look a bit unusual in hindsight.
Speaking before Liverpool's opening International Champions Cup match against Borussia Dortmund in North Carolina on Sunday, Klopp said spending at the top end of the transfer market had moved on.
"That's the problem these days, hey?" "You can't get the world-class goalkeeper who had a really long contract at Roma on a free transfer", Klopp said.
"On the other side, it is still kind of true".
You may have heard a famous quote attributed to legendary economist John Maynard Keynes: "When my information changes, I alter my conclusions".
"£100m was a insane number but since then the world changed".

"We signed the most expensive goalkeeper, there will be a few nice transfers [made by other clubs]. We are still pretty early, it will happen a lot".
The revelation that the decision not to take a punt on Alisson three years ago has cost Liverpool a staggering £63million will shock the club and their fans. As a kid, we used to play wearing a Liverpool shirt in the streets.
"We have a really good squad".
"Still, we need to replace players - Emre Can left, good business bringing Fabinho in". "The day that this is football, I'm not in a job any more".
"I do not know that, I can not say what I'm doing right now, there's still some time left [in the transfer window]".
"If he would at one point join us I don't know".
A clip of Karius making a shocking mistake in the warm-up for the Reds' first pre-season friendly against Chester went viral and his shakiness was on full display again in their next game, when he dropped an atrocious clanger against Tranmere Rovers.
Liverpool will fly to NY on Tuesday morning ahead of their second International Champions Cup game, when they will face Manchester City the following day.
