According to Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool should accept the fact that Emre Can might leave the Reds next summer
According to GOAL, the Germany international’s contract expires at the end of the season and there is interest from Juventus and Bayern Munich.
Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp says losing a player due to a pre-contract agreement with another team is a “part of football”. The Reds are yet to agree on a contract extension with the midfielder, if they want to.
Even though Can’s contract expires in June 2018, the 23-year-old can start negotiations with other clubs in January, six months prior to his possible departure from Anfield.
Juventus have shown interest in the central-midfielder earlier, and the Turin side have been tipped now, with speculations saying Can may join the Italian side.
Furthermore, Bayern Munich head coach Jupp Heynckes praised the qualities of the youngster during a press conference on Friday, which again led to speculations about Can’s possible transfer move to Germany.
“Emre Can is a good boy, he has developed very well, is dynamic and powerful,” Heynckes said.
Jurgen Klopp said everything is okay, and the midfielder doesn’t show signs about being bothered by his possible transfer.
“As long as Emre doesn’t give me one sign that his mind is somewhere else then I don’t have to talk about this. Everything is okay from my side, but nothing new.”
“It’s part of football. If it happens, we can’t change it,” the coach said about the possibility of Can leaving.
Klopp concluded the topic by saying Liverpool have to accept it if Can leaves, since it is a normal situation in football.
“We have to accept even an ending contract. There are two sides who could have done different. One is the club, the other is the player. It is a normal situation.”
