Report: Klopp Makes Anfield Exit U-Turn

Despite Jurgen Klopp previously claiming he would be leaving Liverpool at the end of his current contract, it seems the German tactician could perform a shock U-turn on that decision.

According to the Daily Mail, the Reds are set to open talks with Klopp over a new contract at Anfield.

His current deal expires in 2024, but he has reportedly indicated he is open to fresh terms and there are talks afoot about a possible two-year extension, which would keep him at the home of the 19-time English top-flight champions until 2026.

Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon and Klopp's agent Marc Kosicke were present at Anfield for the first leg of the team's UEFA Champions League semi-final against Villarreal on Tuesday, and talks are expected to accelerate rapidly in the coming days.

Klopp has stated on several occasions that he will leave Liverpool in 2024 when his current deal expires.

It is believed the six-time European champions will now be able to convince him to extend his seven-year association with the club, after his stance softened significantly in recent months.

The Reds have an unprecedented chance to win a quadruple this season. Having won the Carabao Cup in February, they are still in the hunt for the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup titles, in which they will face Chelsea in the final next month.

Klopp is viewed by Liverpool's hierarchy as the perfect manager to steer the club forward, and the club is reportedly willing to move heaven and earth to keep him.

The former Borussia Dortmund tactician's decision to stay on Merseyside may prove pivotal to the Reds keeping some of their prized assets too.

For instance, Mohamed Salah's contract will expire at the end of next season and he has yet to renew it. Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's deals will also expire in 2023, whereas James Milner's is up at the end of this season.
