Jurgen Klopp demands transfers of Liverpool, Chelsea & Manchester United stars if he is to accept Real Madrid job

With recent rumours suggesting Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in contention to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, there’s now talk that he’s preparing transfer targets if he gets the job.

The German tactician has long been regarded as one of the finest coaches in Europe, having burst onto the scene with two Bundesliga title wins during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp is now doing well with Liverpool, albeit without any trophies to his name as of yet, though his side play an attractive brand of attacking football and have returned to the Champions League on his watch.

According to recent claims by Don Balon, Klopp is a candidate for Real Madrid as they ponder the future of the struggling Zidane, and the Spanish outlet now have an update on the saga.

Don Balon are now suggesting Klopp has some targets in mind for if he takes the job at the Bernabeu, with a raid on current club Liverpool among them.

Mohamed Salah’s form this season has been superb so it’s little surprise to see the Reds boss eager to be reunited with the Egypt international at his potential next club, while other Premier League stars are also mentioned.

A big-name forward like Tottenham’s Harry Kane is in his sights, along with PSG star Neymar, while Manchester United and Chelsea goalkeepers David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois are also mentioned by Don Balon.

This would certainly be some sensational business by Real Madrid if they could pull all of it off.

That said, Liverpool fans needn’t panic too much for the moment as Don Balon suggest Germany boss Joachim Low remains the priority target of Florentino Perez.
