Jurgen Klopp has written himself in Liverpool's history forever and will go down as one of the best managers to ever manage Liverpool along with names like Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Kenny Dalglish and Rafael Benitez. 

Liverpool fans absolutely adore the German and he has revolutionized the whole club from top to bottom. When Klopp decides to leave it will be a sad day but it will be looked on with the fondest of memories. Luckily, Klopp signed a new contract in 2019 which keeps him at the club until 2024.

With Jurgen Klopp's clear love and dedication to Liverpool, it came as a massive surprise that Barcelona have looked at the possibility of luring Jurgen Klopp away from Anfield to replace current manager Ronald Koeman.

The report from Spanish site Sport claims that Barcelona's new president Joan Laporta, has looked at bringing Jurgen Klopp to the Catalan club in the summer.

They quickly realised that snatching the German away from Anfield would be 'impossible' due to his commitment to the club. They also wouldn't be able to bring him over due to the financial implications of the move due to Barcelona's financial situation.

This move from Barcelona was an absolute non-starter and it's absurd that they have even thought about it possibly happening. Klopp has said multiple times that he is taking a break from management after his term at Liverpool comes to an end.

If this happened, there would be riots in the streets of Liverpool and FSG would have an absolute nightmare on their hands. Klopp leaving is not even on the tongue of anyone at Liverpool and it shouldn't be while the Liverpool legend is at the club.
