According to reports, Liverpool's outgoing head-coach, Jurgen Klopp, is more inclined to return to football management with either Real Madrid or Barcelona rather than taking control of the German national team.

Klopp, who will step down as Liverpool boss this summer, is expected to take a year-long break before diving back into the game. While there's been speculation about his next move, recent sources suggest that Klopp isn't currently interested in coaching Germany.

Reportedly, Klopp has concerns about Germany's prospects of winning major tournaments in the near future. Instead, he's eyeing a return to La Liga, aiming to manage either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Klopp's coaching journey began in 2001 with Mainz 05 before his successful stint at Borussia Dortmund, where he clinched two Bundesliga titles, the German Cup, and made a memorable run to the Champions League final in 2012-13. His tenure at Liverpool has also been illustrious, winning various titles including the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League.

Currently, Liverpool is still in the hunt for four more trophies this season, actively competing in the Premier League, FA Cup, and Europa League, with an EFL Cup final showdown against Chelsea scheduled for February 28th.

Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are undergoing managerial changes this summer. Xavi is stepping down as Barcelona's head coach, citing the need for a "change of direction," while Carlo Ancelotti leads Real Madrid, having recently been granted a contract extension until 2026. Whether either of these positions will be available next summer remains uncertain.
