Liverpool would have the same transfer budget if they finish top-four.
This is according to Jurgen Klopp who believes the Reds will face a difficult transfer window whether or not they secure Champions League qualification.
The Merseyside club are estimated to have lost around £120million since the initial outbreak in March 2020.
This is the first time in five seasons that the team won’t be participating in Champions League football.
“I don’t think so, really,” Klopp said.
“Playing Champions League obviously is massive, especially from a financial point of view for the club. So it’s really important.
“If we cannot make that, then that’s not good. Definitely not.
“I don’t think it will change anything because the situation was difficult before and it is difficult after.”
Liverpool faces Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend where Jurgen Klopp has never won as a manager.
“More than 100%,” he said, speaking on Friday. “Even then, if the others all win nothing changes for us.
“But without winning football games we will not end up in any kind of European competition, so for us everything is clear.
“For sure when you are a Liverpool player or a manager it is the game where you have to give everything anyway.”
