The Daily Star has tentatively linked Jurgen Klopp with a move to Bayern Munich and it doesn’t make sense.
You would think, given Liverpool’s electrifying form, that there would be no reason to think that anyone in the first team setup would want a move elsewhere. Certainly not the starting eleven, and certainly not Jurgen Klopp.
That being said, however, the Daily Star has claimed that Bayern Munich views Klopp as the ideal replacement for Carlo Ancelotti whose deal with the Bundesliga club expires in 2019.
The article goes on to say that Klopp may find it “almost impossible” to resist the temptation of joining Bayern. If this was the case, then why didn’t Kloppo wait until Pep Guardiola left the German club and then join, or sign with Real Madrid when Rafa Benitez left the Spanish capital?
It’s simple: he doesn’t fancy the type of club that Bayern, Real Madrid and Manchester United are. He prefers teams like Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool where there is a culture of working for what you earn. The aforementioned three clubs are all mega rich and buy their players instead of training and developing them into superstars.

Furthermore, Klopp has already declared that he would be quite happy if he retired with Liverpool as the last club that he managed.
Funnily enough, in another article from the Daily Star these quotes from Klopp directly contradict what has recently emerged:
“Do I want another club in Germany? No. In England? No. In Asia, Russia or the United Arab Emirates? No, no, no.
“And then I thought that I am already at the right club and why should I worry about how long I am here for. If I am at the end of my career has managed only three clubs then at least they were great clubs.”
So, if Klopp has, as recently as the 17 of August, said that he’d be happy with never managing another club, then what has changed? Nothing. That’s why these rumours are absolutely absurd.
Liverpool is fourth in the Premier League, level on points with Arsenal, and there is no indication that Klopp’s side will be relenting in their gegenpressing machine which, aside from a fluke at Burnley, has been irrepressible in the opening six games of the Premier League season.
Klopp won’t be letting bullsh*t rumours distract him or his team from the task at hand which is getting as many points on the board and getting to the latter stages of the domestic tournaments. Up next is Swansea, a perfect opportunity for Liverpool to continue building momentum before hosting eternal rivals Manchester United at Anfield on the 17th of October.
