Miroslav Klose ‘seriously considering’ MLS move, three clubs interested – report

Miroslav Klose is once again being linked with a move to Major League Soccer as the German striker reportedly wants to experience playing in the United States before ending his illustrious playing career.

The 37-year-old’s Lazio contract expires at the end of the season and so he could sign a pre-contract agreement from January 31, when he will have less than six months remaining on his current deal.

Reports from Italian outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi claim the German forward is keen on a move to MLS with LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls and Chicago Fire all apparently interested.

The all-time leading FIFA World Cup goalscorer has not scored in five Serie A appearances so far this term and would seemingly like one last challenge before hanging up his boots.

Klose was desperate to play in the Champions League with Lazio this season but he reportedly lost motivation after the club’s playoff exit to Bayer Leverkusen in August.

Of the three clubs linked with the German, LA Galaxy’s interest seems most strange. They are stacked in terms of attacking options and already have three Designated Players.

Chicago Fire and the Red Bulls both have one DP slot available but are unlikely to use that final slot on a 37-year-old. That said, Klose might decide to join on a non-DP deal and would therefore be a much more appealing option.

Should Miroslav Klose move to MLS before retiring from football? Which club need him most?

  1. No. NO. MLS is not a retirement league that you can “experience” on a whim. If you’re here, you’re here to play. Drogba didn’t come here to retire and look how he’s doing. Gerrard and Dos Santos clearly did come here only half-ready and look how stellar that turned out.

  2. MLS isn’t a retirement league nowadays. This isn’t 2007. By the sounds of it, “…experience playing in the United States…” says retire. If he plans to do that, then he’s gonna get one helluva “experience” then… A big failure.
