Liverpool ‘plans to announce new contract’ as Barcelona holds ‘secret meeting’ with Jürgen Klopp

Much is changing at Liverpool, but as the Premier League title race rages on, there are also a number of off-the-field issues to address. We’ve covered some of that in today’s Media Digest.

Klopp and Barcelona secret ‘meetings’ emerge amid claim Liverpool boss may ‘forget sabbatical’

Jürgen Klopp could forget his sabbatical idea in favor of joining Barcelona, according to El Nacional via Football365. Secret meetings are reported to have already been held over the idea of Klopp taking over at the Nou Camp, where he is said to be leading the way on the candidates list ahead of Hansi Flick and Roberto De Zerbi.

Current Barcelona manager Xavi recently announced that he was set to step down at the end of the season, and it looks as though Klopp is on the radar. Klopp’s wife, Ulla, is claimed to be a fan of the club, who could be set to lose star man Frenkie De Jong this summer.

Liverpool.com says: Given Klopp has already said that he intends to take a break, it is unlikely that secret talks are already being held elsewhere. He has said he wants to take a year out; of course that might change after a few months which sees him return sooner than planned, but the only possible job he would consider discussing while in charge of Liverpool would be the Germany one.

Given that’s currently taken by Julian Nagelsmann, whether it becomes a possibility depends on how the German national team perform at this summer’s European Championships. Interestingly, Nagelsmann has also been linked with the Liverpool job in a potential ‘job swap’
