The charismatic German manager still has Three years left on his £7m/Season contract but the American owners Fenway Sports Group wants to show their commitment to “The Normal One” and tie him down on a long term deal.
Talks of a new deal have surfaced after Liverpool’s Sixth European Cup win which made him one of the greats in Anfield record books. Jurgen Klopp also guided Liverpool to a 97 point season Premier League, 2015/16 UEFA Europa League final and 2017/18 UEFA Champions League final. Klopp might have lost both finals but experience in both the finals must have immensely helped in the Teambuilding process.
He has also won Manager of the Month three times September 2016, December 2018 and March 2019 since taking over Anfield reign as a replacement for Brendan Rodgers in October of 2015.

Klopp has a record of 38 draws, 86 wins in his 144 games in charge as manager of The Reds. He also guided Liverpool to EFL Cup final in 2015-16 Season.
If this deal goes through Klopp will be one of the highest paid managers in the world. The £10 million/Year is a fixed income and does not take into consideration the performance-based bonuses.
