Liverpool ready to give Klopp new contract
Liverpool are hoping to extend Jurgen Klopp’s stay at Anfield with a bumper new deal.
Klopp is currently contracted to the club through 2022 at almost $9 million per season, but has been linked to his former rivals Bayern Munich.

Reds chairman Tom Werner has said he believes Klopp is “committed to Liverpool” and that the club wants him to stay “as long as he likes” following a triumph over Tottenham Hotspur which provided the Anfield set with their sixth UEFA Champions League title.
The 51-year-old Klopp has won 57 percent of his matches in charge of Liverpool, even better than his sterling run at Borussia Dortmund. He led Mainz to Bundesliga promotion before winning two German league crowns and a German Cup.
Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer admitted that he’d like to “one day” see Klopp manage Bayern Munich, who recently won another Bundesliga title and retained manager Niko Kovac.
That’s not happening any time soon, as Klopp attempts to give Liverpool something it hasn’t seen in the Premier League era: A domestic title.
