The chances of Jurgen Klopp becoming the next Manchester United manager are next to nothing, according to German journalist Raphael Honigstein.

Now, Honigstein's record is patchy at best, but he could know what he's talking about. He's probably a lot better connected to Klopp's side than ours, although we don't know what the reasons are.

For all the naive posturing about "why would he leave Dortmund?", to which the answer is obviously "a far bigger budget, no need to sell his players and a huge wage rise", it could be that Klopp doesn't fancy it, or it could be that we don't fancy him. Or it could just be nonsense.

Klopp seems to be the favourite of a lot of fans so we doubt this'll go down well. But we'll keep our ears peeled over this one.
