Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Farre claims that he has instigated talks with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp about a future move to Camp Nou.

Presidential candidate Jordi Farre has revealed that he is open to appointing Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as Barcelona's head coach in the future.

While Ronald Koeman has only recently been named as a replacement for Quique Setien, there is already talk of potential replacements as a result of the next presidential elections.

With Barcelona having under-performed in La Liga and the Champions League last season, that has led to Farre suggesting that Klopp would be an ideal appointment in the coming years.

Speaking to Diario Sport, Farre said: "If Koeman works and does well, he would be [in charge], of course.

"Obviously, we have our roadmap and we had already started several conversations with Jurgen Klopp, because it seems to us that Barca need such a coach."

Klopp has previously stated that he plans to depart the Premier League champions in 2024.
