Jurgen Klopp is considering taking over at Bayern Munich if Pep Guardiola leaves the Alianz Arena.
Reports earlier suggested that Liverpool and Manchester City wanted Klopp during the summer transfer window but the former Borussia Dortmund boss declined their offers claiming he’s taking time to reflect on his managerial career at Dortmund
Sources claim Klopp is said to be considering managing Bayern before considering a switch to England
With Guardiola’s long-term future unclear and his contract due to expire at the end of the season, the 48-year-old could be the ideal replacement for the successful spaniard
After spending seven seasons at BVB where he transforms Dortmund from mid table team to back-to-back Bundesliga winners in 2011 and 2012 and reaching the UEFA Champions League final in 2013 where they lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich at Wembley
However, despite his disappointing final campaign in 2014-15 season where Dortmund failed to secure a Champions League ticket by finishing mid-table and losing the DFB Pokal final to Wolfsburg, Klopp’s stock still remains high.
Speaking to Bild earlier this month regarding his future however, Klopp has hinted that he might not manage the so-called “top club’
‘It doesn’t have to be an absolute top club. There are other good projects that are exciting, [teams] who need help,’ he told Bild.
‘I inform, read and meet a lot of people – there are ordinary little things that are great fun. I miss nothing [from football] currently.
‘I don’t know where I’ll be heading to,’ he continued. ‘But right now, that’s not important for me.
‘I know that if I will have the right feeling it will be a wonderful next chapter. You will see what happens and I find it exciting right now not knowing what will happen next.’
