Liverpool open talks over Jurgen Klopp new contract as quadruple chase intensifies

Liverpool have opened talks with Jurgen Klopp’s agent about the prospect of extending the German’s stay on Merseyside beyond his current deal, which expires in 2024, in what could prove a major development.

Klopp was widely assumed to be set to leave the club upon his contract expiry, and had suggested as much to the press previously, but in the past months has appeared more keen to stay and admitted he could choose to stay ‘at the last minute… if I have the energy levels for it’.

And, following their 2-0 win over Villareal in the Champions League semi-final first leg, which saw them take another step in their chase for an unprecedented quadruple, it has been reported by multiple media outlets that negotiations are ongoing about a potential extension to the deal, that would take Klopp’s stay on Merseyside beyond a decade.

The Guardian claim that  ‘Liverpool’s owner, Fenway Sports Group, has opened talks about extending Jürgen Klopp’s contract beyond 2024’ with the manager having been ‘enthused by the club’s long-term planning’ that has seen the likes of Luis Diaz and Ibrahima Konate join the club.

Can Liverpool win the quadruple?

Eight games. That is all that separates this Liverpool from immortality.

An FA cup final against Chelsea and a likely Champions League final against Manchester City (Though Real Madrid cannot be ruled out) seem small fry by comparison to the Premier League title, where the Reds still need to rely on Pep Guardiola’s side to slip up in their remaining five games, while being perfect themselves.

Currently, the Quadruple seems a longshot, despite already having banked one of the four trophies. But something special is happening at Anfield, and you just cannot rule it out.
