Jurgen Klopp has not forgot Bundesliga and here is the proof. The Bundesliga club Schalke’scentral defender Joel Matip is about to sign on a deal with the Premier League club, Liverpool FC. This is not a rumour as Schalke has already confirmed this deal on Twitter and on official website with a statement that, the central defender is not willing to renew the deal with Schalke and is willing to join Anfield at the end of this season.
The Chief executive has told that,
We have since May last year had many intensive discussions, both with Joel and his advisor. It was soon clear that factors would be decisive for Joel’s decision that we ultimately could not influence.
On the other hand, Schalke have told that,
Joel Matip has agreed to join Liverpool at the end of the season, and will not extend his contract at Schalke. The central defender will sign a new deal at the Premier League club.
He has been playing in Bundesliga since 2009 and he has a good carrier at Schalke. Therefore, the new Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, is willing to bring this player at Liverpool.
On the same transfer news, Matip has said that,
I have always said I would say goodbye to Schalke for only one reason: to get acquainted with something completely new. Therefore, a change within the Bundesliga never came into consideration for me. Although my decision is definitely not easy, I am convinced that now is the right time to take this step. Schalke will remain a big family for me. I was always proud to play for this great club and I will do everything possible in the coming months to get the most out of this season. I owe the fans and the team.
Although, the joining price is still not disclosed but it is going to be a free transfer from his current club.
