Liverpool want to extend Jürgen Klopp’s contract following the Champions League triumph his players believe heralds the beginning of a glittering era under their charismatic manager.
Klopp has three years remaining on the six-year, £7m per annum contract he signed during his first summer at Liverpool in 2016 but Fenway Sports Group will look to secure the man who has transformed the club’s fortunes and give him a longer deal.
The 51-year-old German loves being the Liverpool manager and his family are happy on Merseyside.
Rewarding him with an improved contract beyond 2022 is viewed as a priority by FSG as it seeks to build on a position of strength this summer.
Klopp has dismissed talk of a contract extension in recent months, insisting he is satisfied with and committed to a seven-year stay that would match his tenures at Borussia Dortmund and Mainz.
Having secured the core of the Champions League winning squad on long-term deals, including Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino until 2023, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson until 2024, Liverpool’s owner wants to follow suit with the manager.
