Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly turned down an approach to manage Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly spent an hour on the phone with Paris Saint-Germain chiefs with the French side approaching the Reds boss as their new manager. PSG are currently managed by Thomas Tuchel but the German has been regularly under pressure.

Klopp, meanwhile, is loving life at Anfield with Liverpool 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

But with PSG keen to match their domestic success with that in Europe, they will reportedly be after a new manager should Tuchel fail in their quest for the Champions League this season.

French outlet Le10Sport claim that PSG had already contacted former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri.

And with Klopp having led Liverpool to the Champions League last season, it’s claimed that PSG sporting director Leonardo spoke with Klopp for more than an hour discussing the role.

Leonardo reportedly spoke to Klopp about the project that he wanted implemented at the Parc des Princes over the coming months and years.

Though Le10Sport add that Klopp did not act on the phone call, indicating that he is happy at Liverpool.

It comes with the German having extended his contract at Anfield earlier this month, keeping him as Reds boss until 2024.

Upon signing the deal, former Borussia Dortmund boss said: “This club is in such a good place, I couldn’t contemplate leaving.

“For me personally this is a statement of intent, one which is built on my knowledge of what we as a partnership have achieved so far and what is still there for us to achieve.

“When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow.

“People see what happens on the pitch as a measure of our progress and although it is the best measure, it’s not the only measure.

“I have seen the commitment from ownership through to every aspect and function of the club you can think of.

“When the call came in autumn 2015, I felt we were perfect for each other; if anything, now I feel I underestimated that.

“It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complementary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024.

“If I didn’t, I would not be re-signing.”
