BILD says Klopp could walk away from Liverpool in the summer of 2022 to manage his native Germany.
The 53-year-old confirmed last week that he has no plans to leave the club anytime soon despite rumours of rifts between players and claims that the German was considering his future.
But that has not stopped talk in the German press about when he may call it a day at Anfield - where he has a contract until 2024 - following their rut of four straight home defeats.
Klopp is clear in his plans that he will definitely return to Germany, and that the timing of the whole situation would allow him to leave Liverpool next summer, take six months off before taking over in early 2023.
There would also be the added incentive for Klopp of Germany hosting the European Championships the following year, the second time it would be held there since the country's reunification and the third time on German territory.
The same outlet adds Klopp and his wife Ulla are very comfortable in Liverpool, and should the club's sporting plans match his ambitions, they claim he could stay with them for nine years in total.
