Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been told he must accept a lack of control over transfers this summer if he is to stay on as manager at Anfield next season.
The Northern Irishman is under some pressure this summer after a disappointing season, in which the club finished sixth in the Premier League and failed to win any silverware.
Some of Rodgers’ signings have come under intense scrutiny as well, with the likes of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren looking particularly poor since joining the club the previous summer.
Liverpool are now being linked with Jurgen Klopp as a replacement for the former Swansea City manager, and the Daily Mirror claims he will only keep his job with the Merseyside giants if he accepts that he will not have full control over their signings.
The Reds currently decide on transfers through a committee, and although Rodgers wants this to change, he will be told this week to accept the status quo.
