Raphael Honigstein reveals what he knows about Jurgen Klopp’s future

It is still possible that Man City will have to return to Liverpool again this season if they both win their last 16 games and are drawn in either the quarter finals - like previous year - or even the semi-finals.

Klopp is now contracted until the summer of 2022 after signing a new six-year contract in July 2016.

"My adviser Björn Bezemer later informed me that there was contact with Bayern after the match, but I don't think they were really interested".

"That does not mean that he will never go to Bayern: Klopp says for logical reasons alone that they are one of the best clubs in the world".

Speaking to German media outlet Sport Bild he was speaking about Bayern Munich's chances against Liverpool in the Champions League last 16 tie next week.


Guardiola, of course, is now at Manchester City, who currently sit top of the league on goal difference with Liverpool still having a game to play.

"Bayern and Man City were always financially ahead of Klopp's teams, and it is an honour for him that he comes on equal terms only with a lot of effort", he added. On one hand, that is very attractive for Klopp, but on the other hand a bit frustrating: "Bayern always signed some of his players, and that was gnawing at him". "I think you can see the confidence in the players and when players are happy they are able to express themselves and show everyone they are a good player". "I'd advise him to join Liverpool".

Apart from Liverpool and Barcelona, European champions Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the player.

Hopefully Honigstein is right, and if his claim is true, we could see Klopp signing a new long-term contract in the future.

Gundogan previously plied his trade for Bayern's fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund, and has told the club they should be wary of the threat Liverpool possess, knowing all too well from his recent visits there as a City player.
