"Manchester United are like an adult version of Disneyland!" - Klopp reveals bizzare chat-up line when approached by United

Premier League side, Manchester United tried to lure Jurgen Klopp away from Borussia Dortmund in 2014  by describing themselve to him as "an adult version of Disneyland."

Klopp, who presently is the manager of United's  rival Liverpool, was strongly linked to Old Trafford as the club struggled under former manager,  David Moyes.

This is according to the upcoming biography on Klopp titled "Bring the Noise", written by Raphael Honigstein.

It was stated that United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward flew to see the German tactician few weeks before Moyes was shown the exit door.

However, Klopp apparently found Woodward's bizarre comparison between United and Disneyland “a bit unsexy” and therefore decided to remain at Dortmund.

Excerpt from the book reads: “Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward had flown out to see Klopp in Germany.

“Klopp wasn't entirely convinced by that sales pitch, he found it a bit 'unsexy', he told a friend  but he didn't dismiss the proposition out of hand either.”

Klopp later met up with Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke to confirm he had made up his mind and that he would be turning down United's offer.
