According to news outlet TeamTalk, Jurgen Klopp is poised to sign a new contract with Liverpool in the coming weeks.
The Liverpool manager is currently contracted with the Reds until 2022 but it is reported that Liverpool are willing to offer him another extension in order to secure his services for another five years. Liverpool fans around the globe will be hoping that these rumours turn out to be true as the German has revolutionised Liverpool turning fans from doubters to believers.
This season Klopp has continued to bring the Reds to the top of the footballing ladder with his team challenging for the Premier League title as we enter into the final weekend. He has also led the Reds to back to back Champions League finals where they will be looking to win a historic sixth trophy in Madrid next month.
Fabrizio Romano of Calciomercato reports, “a new contract is ready for Klopp with a record salary, that worth of a top player with the German all set to put pen to paper in the next couple of weeks”. It is thought that this salary will be worth £8.6million per season, plus bonuses, this is the equivalent of around £165,000 a week. Liverpool hope that this lucrative deal will be enough to keep him at the club and to prevent other clubs from enquiring about his availability.
Klopp was quoted stating last month that:
“The club and myself – have a wonderful commitment that we really try everything to make the club as successful as possible.
“How long it will take, I have no clue. The position we are now in I am really happy with.”
It is undeniable that the team has progressed immensely since Klopp’s reign began in 2015. His management has turned Liverpool from a struggling mid-table team to a European superpower once again. Reds across the globe will be hoping that the club do all they can to secure a new contract for the German as soon as possible.
