Barcelona Presidential Candidate Holds Talks With Jurgen Klopp Over Potential Camp Nou Move

Barcelona Presidential Candidate Holds Talks With Jurgen Klopp Over Potential Camp Nou Move

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been earmarked as a potential successor to Ronald Koeman as Barcelona manager.

That's according to Jordi Farre, who will be standing as a candidate in Barcelona's presidential elections in 2021.

Farre claims that Koeman, who was recently appointed Barcelona manager, could stay on as head coach should his managerial tenure 'work out.'

However, the presidential hopeful has made a bombshell claim that they have "already started several conversations" with Klopp and his representatives over a switch to the Camp Nou.

Farre told Spanish newspaper Sport: "If Koeman works and does well, he would be, of course.

"Obviously, we have our roadmap and we had already started several conversations with Jurgen Klopp because it seems to us that Barca need such a coach."

Koeman, 57, signed a two-year deal to become new Barcelona manager after Quique Setien was sacked.

"Because of his character, I think that was what the club needed now. I wish him the best because the challenge is huge."
