Will Jurgen Klopp be a fool to reject an offer from Real Madrid this summer? Probably. And I’m about to tell you why.
Speculation is rampant about who will be Los Blancos’ next manager next season and Klopp seems to be on their radar.
Indeed, according to reports via the Independent, the German manager is being touted as Santiago Solari’s successor come next season. What is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the German, he shouldn’t allow emotions to cloud his judgement.
The work he’s done on Merseyside is admirable, but in order to attain the best in the world status, he needs to succeed at possibly the most difficult managerial job in Europe.
Klopp’s high voltage style of football and the way he’s transformed Liverpool into such a complete side must’ve impressed Florentino Perez. Despite being close to legendary status at Anfield, if Klopp’s an ambitious manager, and shouldn’t say no to the Madrid offer.
The idea of developing a host of young talents in the Spanish capital – the likes of Dani Cellabos, Vinicius Junior, Marco Asensio and Brahim Diaz – should be exciting and lend itself to the idea of creating a dynasty at the Santiago Bernabeu, one that could rival Barcelona in terms of long-term dominance.
Granted, he’ll receive a lot of flak for not further immersing his legacy at Liverpool, but when Real Madrid come calling, you don’t say no. There’s a good chance Los Blancos made huge “Galactico” signings like an Eden Hazard or a Neymar to boost their squad next season, and the opportunity to work with such a world-class squad is irresistible.
After failing to win trophies in his years at Liverpool, Klopp could showcase his trophy-winning ability at Real Madrid. If he does manage to lead them back to the pinnacle of European football, the German’s reputation will sky-rocket from being a promising manager to an indefinite winner.
