Barcelona candidate Laporta 'dreams' of prising Klopp away from Liverpool

Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta has hopes of prising Jurgen Klopp away from Liverpool.

Ahead of the January 24 election, Okdiario says Klopp is Laporta's 'dream' coaching candidate should he be voted in for a second spell as Barca president.

The German isn't part of Laporta's ticket, but tops his list of coaching candidates.

While he is tied to Liverpool until 2024, it's claimed the agreement includes a break clause at the end of every season.

Along with Klopp, Laporta is also keen on bringing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland to Barca for next season.
