Lionel Messi is already in the final stages of his footballing career but Klopp still has great admiration for the Argentine.

According to reports from Spain the Liverpool manager is ready to facilitate a move for Messi in the summer instead of splashing a huge sum on 21-year-old Kylian Mbappe.

Lionel Messi is under contract with Barcelona until the end of next season and has a market value of over £90million.

However, it is said that a deal for the six-time Ballon d'Or winner can be compromised to a lesser transfer fee and weekly salary due to age factor.

The 32-year-old, Jurgen Klopp has described as a more useful player on the pitch when asked to give his verdict between the Argentine and Cristiano Ronaldo in an interview.

"For me Messi, but I couldn't admire Ronaldo more than I do already," Klopp told YouTube channel freekickerz.

"The explanation is the following: We've played against both already and both are almost impossible to defend.

"But Messi has much lower physical requirements from birth on.

"If you could paint yourself a perfect player, it would have Ronaldo's height, he could jump and run as high or quick as Ronaldo can do.

"And what is then even added to that is his total attitude - it is absolutely perfect and professional, it couldn't be any better.

"And on the other side there is the small Messi who makes everything look so simple.

"And therefore I like him maybe a little bit more as a player on the pitch. But Cristiano is also an absolutely incredible player."
