Aurelio De Laurentiis wants Klopp to replace Luciano Spalletti at Napoli

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Aurelio De Laurentiis, president of Napoli, wants Jurgen Klopp to succeed Luciano Spalletti as manager of Napoli.

The season’s end will see the current Serie A champions part ways with their manager.

Although Napoli attempted to activate a clause in Spalletti’s contract that would have extended his stay until 2024, the 64-year-old is prepared to move on. His contract expires in the summer.

De Laurentiis has begun making preparations for life without their manager and fantasizes about hiring Klopp.

In 2013, he was eager to bring the Liverpool manager to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, but the arrangement fell through.

Rafa Benitez was ultimately hired by Napoli, and the Italian club has also made contact with the former Reds manager.

It is unlikely that Klopp will leave the Merseyside club before the end of his contract, which runs through 2026.

As Brendan Rodgers’ replacement, the German initially signed a three-year contract with Liverpool in 2015.

He has become a club legend after signing a new extension in April of last year.

After winning the Champions League in 2018–19, Klopp led the Anfield club to their first Premier League title in 2019–20.

Under the 55-year-old, Liverpool made it to two additional Champions League finals (in 2017–18 and 2021–22), but Real Madrid defeated them both.

The Reds also lost the Premier League title to Manchester City by one point twice, in 2018–19 and 2021-22 respectively.

Napoli must find a new manager because the club is not willing to part ways with their beloved manager any time soon.

Liverpool have confidence in Klopp to return them to winning ways next season despite finishing this campaign without a trophy.
