Jurgen Klopp’s agent has admitted that his client would one day like to manage the German national team, but confirms that he’s more than happy at Anfield.
The Liverpool boss is one of the most sought after men in the game – with Real Madrid and Juventus both reportedly interested in his services recently.
“Jurgen himself once said that in the event that Joachim Low someday no longer wants to be the national coach and it would be possible for him do that, this is an option for him,” the agent told German outlet Welt.
Klopp’s agent did go on to confirm that he feels he’s at Liverpool at the right time, and that he’s happy with the club.
“Liverpool would even like to extend it (his current contract). He felt again at the recent celebrations [after winning the Champions League] what a great club Liverpool is and that he is in the right place at the right time.
“Jurgen is currently not affordable. But it is difficult to measure the transfer fee in his case anyway. How is this going to work for a coach who has increased the club’s value from nearly £900 million to just under £2.8billion? That is not how it works.”
Klopp signed a six-year contract extension in 2016, right after the Europa League Final defeat to Sevilla, meaning that right now – he’s still got three years left to run.
But according to Fabrizio Romano, a respectable journalist, who’s penned a piece in the slightly less-respected Calciomercato, Liverpool are offering him bumper new terms to keep him at Anfield even longer.
The Italian writes that the club will tempt Klopp with a five-year extension on wages of around €10m/season, plus premiums based on performance.
