Rumours in recent weeks have suggested that the German manager is set to leave the Westfalenstadion when his contract ends after a long period at the club, with the Red Devils already looking at him as a replacement for Louis van Gaal.
And now it appears that BVB are braced for a parting of company.
Sources within the club think that Klopp would relish the chance to manage in England, despite claims that Barcelona and Real Madrid have been hugely impressed by his work in the Bundesliga.
Even though LVG has only just been appointed, the big shots at Old Trafford are said to see the Dortmund gaffer as a good option for when their Dutch boss retires or moves on – he is over 63-years-old now.
Klopp is famous for his brand of attacking football, which would appear to tie in with United’s proud history of entertaining their fans.
