Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now The Reds had, however, performed admirably in reaching that stage and, with further additions already being made at Anfield , are looking to the future with optimism and excitement.Purslow believes that will be enough to keep Klopp in his current post, with Liverpool’s former managing director telling Sky Sports : “The key difference I think for the last five, 10, 15, 20 years, is the sheer amount of wealth in the Premier League means there’s no economic reason for those managers to move to Real Madrid.”It boils down to prestige, trophies and where they see the potential of their current situation.”There is no way I think Jurgen Klopp is going to be tempted to move given the season he’s just come off.”While confident that his former employers on Merseyside can retain the services of their highly-rated manager, Purslow fears Tottenham may face more of a struggle if Madrid decide to make a move for Mauricio Pochettino.He added: “I’m less certain about Pochettino. I saw his comments and he didn’t exactly dismiss it.”He’s got a long-term contract – well done Daniel Levy. It would cost Madrid a huge amount of money to sign Pochettino, to break that contract.”But I think if they offer Spurs £50 million and he wanted to go, stranger things have happened in football.”Pochettino has provided mixed messages when quizzed on his links to Madrid , with claims that he is happy in north London after penning fresh terms countered by admittance that anything can happen in the future.
