The German manager—who is currently on a sabbatical out of the sport—has been linked with a move to any of the three Premier League clubs as a potential replacement for under-performing pair Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger, or Manuel Pellegrini, for whom the pressure is on after his failure to secure the Premier League title last term.
However, speaking to Bild, the Bundesliga-winning coach has revealed that he is keen to take over at Bayern Munich—and is waiting on any indication that that job might be available—before turning his attentions to possible opportunities in England.
“It doesn’t have to be an absolute top club. There are other good projects that are exciting, [teams] who need help,” he told the German paper, as per the Daily Mail.
“I inform, read and meet a lot of people – there are ordinary little things that are great fun. I miss nothing [from football] currently.
“I don’t know where I’ll be heading to,” he went on, “but right now, that’s not important for me.

“I know that if I will have the right feeling it will be a wonderful next chapter. You will see what happens and I find it exciting right now not knowing what will happen next.”
Klopp is apparently keen to receive some kind of clarification from Bayern that he is in their considerations to replace Pep Guardiola, whose contract finishes at the end of the season.
While the Spanish coach has enjoyed great success in the Bundesliga, he has struggled in the Champions League, where his side have consistently been outclassed in the semi-final stage.
Regardless of how his side perform in the European Cup this season, Guardiola may decide to end his mixed association with Bayern this summer, potentially opening the door for Klopp to secure his dream job.
