Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp might be tempted back into management as early as this summer as he prepares to leave Anfield. Klopp will be saying goodbye to Anfield at the end of this season after a nine-year stint on Merseyside. When announcing his plans, Klopp confessed that he was running out of energy and needs a break from football. The German also insisted he would not manage a club or country for at least a year and would never take charge of another Premier League side.

However, journalist Gerard Romero suggests that Klopp might put his planned break on hold to return to management for one particular club. Romero claims that Klopp might not be able to resist an offer to manage Barcelona, as he has reportedly had chats with Barcelona president Joan Laporta in the past.

Klopp has managed only three clubs in his career and will surely wait for the right moment and club before making any return. With current boss Xavi Hernandez announcing his departure at the end of the season, Barcelona has emerged as a possible destination. Despite Barcelona's La Liga victory last season, the Spanish giants are trailing eight points behind league leaders Real Madrid. Like Klopp, Barca icon Xavi admitted that his energy levels are dwindling.

"In Barcelona, you always feel like you're not valued, you're mistreated that's how the club works," he said. "From a mental-health level, it's tough too. I am a positive guy, but the battery levels keep running out and at some point, you realise there's no point in staying."

Klopp is clear about his decision

Klopp has made it clear that his future won't include managing any other English team apart from Liverpool. He stated: "If you ask me, 'Will you ever work as a manager again?' I would say now, no. But I don't know obviously how that will feel because I never had the situation." "What I know definitely, I will never, ever manage a different club in England than Liverpool, 100 per cent. That's not possible." Liverpool could yet end Klopp's tenure with four trophies and has already secured a place in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea later this month. The Reds sit top of the Premier League, although that gap has now been closed to two points, and is among the favorites to go on and win the FA Cup and Europa League.
