Liverpool Ready to Triple 47-year-old Manager’s Wage to Replace Jurgen Klopp Amid Competition

Liverpool are reportedly planning to significantly triple Simone Inzaghi’s salary in a bid to entice him away from Inter Milan and appoint him as Jurgen Klopp’s replacement at Anfield.

Klopp recently announced his decision to depart from Liverpool at the end of the season, citing a desire for a football sabbatical. As the Reds actively seek the German replacement, speculation abounds regarding potential candidates.

Among them, Xabi Alonso, the current manager of Bayer Leverkusen, appears to be a frontrunner with the bookmakers. However, Bayern Munich could also pose a challenge for Alonso’s services, with reports suggesting that a move to Bavaria might hold more appeal for him than stepping into Klopp’s shoes at Liverpool.

Other names in the managerial mix for Liverpool include Roberto De Zerbi of Brighton, Julian Nagelsmann leading Germany national team, and Ruben Amorim of Sporting Lisbon.

These candidates are being considered as alternatives should the pursuit of Alonso prove unsuccessful. Alonso has garnered attention for his impressive leadership at Leverkusen, propelling the team to a commanding lead in the Bundesliga.

In a surprising turn, Italian journalist Enrico Camelio has revealed that both Liverpool and Bayern Munich are prepared to triple the 47-year-old Inter Milan boss’ current wages. This revelation emerged during an update provided by Camelio on TV Play via Twitch, characterising it as a ‘bombshell’ update in the managerial saga.

Camelio said: “Don’t ask me about the team. It’s clearly not in Italy, I’ll give you two teams that give three times what Simone Inzaghi gets. One is Liverpool and one is Bayern Munich, one of the two is interested in Simone Inzaghi. And beware that Inter have to sell a star player, it’s already on the record.”

Michael Edwards, the former sporting director, has rejoined Liverpool in a new capacity. His role entails overseeing the significant transition expected this summer as Klopp departs.

On the return of Edwards, former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson said: “Yeah, well, off the top of my head, I can’t think of anyone behind the scenes better than Eddie. His knowledge of the game and how he works things out and builds the team around him is very, very important.

“And obviously, when it comes to signings, you see how good the work is, but there’s a lot of effort that goes in it behind the scenes that we don’t see. The guy’s worked extremely hard. So to have him back I think is a huge, huge bonus.”

Has Harvey Elliott Been World Class in Recent Weeks?

Amid Liverpool’s recent string of injuries, Harvey Elliott, one of the younger players, has been forced to step up. Johnson believes he has transformed into a world-class player.

Johnson added: “I think he’s been world-class. He does the simple things very, very well, and people take that for granted. His short passes, his short little movements, if you’re watching him, his head’s always on a turn. He knows exactly where people are.

“He’s brave to get on the ball, and brave to get on the ball in a huge game like the one at the weekend. Someone like Diaz, of course they catch your eye. And Nunez, of course they get the limelight, and that’s fine. But I think there’s a lot of work that Harvey does that he doesn’t get credit for.”

On whether Liverpool are good enough to win the Quadruple, Johnson continued: “At the moment. Yeah. Because you’ve got to be in it to win it, as we say. Of course it’d be tough, certainly with the amount of injuries that they have, they’re going to need a few more bodies back. And obviously it needs some luck.

“But in terms of are they good enough? Absolutely. You know, if they play the way they did against City, who’s going to beat them? I know it’s hard to play like that every week. But that’s the standard that they’re capable of.”
