German striker Miroslav Klose has all but confirmed reports that he will be leaving Lazio at the end of the current campaign.
The veteran forward has entered the final year of his deal at Stadio Olimpico, and with the Biancocelesti largely struggling at the moment, he seems to have decided to abandon the sinking ship.
Klose remains heavily linked with a summer switch to the MLS, and he has suggested that a move to United States is a realistic possibility.
“I have a contract with Lazio until June and they proposed an extension, but I’ve received other offers,” Klose was quoted as saying to Brazilian newspaper Lance!.
“I had a few proposals from the MLS and that would be interesting, seeing as Gerd Muller also went to America.
“In any case, I have no intention of retiring, as I want to play for a while yet.”
Miroslav Klose joined Lazio on a free transfer from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2011 and has since scored 29 goals in 65 Serie A appearances for the club.
Having also played for Kaiserslautern and Werder Bremen in Bundesliga, he is considered one of Germany’s most prolific strikers and currently has 68 goals in 130 matches for the national team.
