Now, according to The Sun, Real Madrid are interested in appointing Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as their next manager.

Liverpool’s sensational form which has seen them transformed into one of the most lethal attacking powers in European football this season, and being in the bring of also qualifying for the semi-finals of the Champions League after their 3-0 win over Man City last week.
