Klose on the market


BERLIN, March 29 – Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus and Benfica are among European clubs to have made offers for Bayern Munich and Germany striker Miroslav Klose for next season, the Bild daily reported Tuesday.

The 32-year-old’s contract at Bayern Munich expires at the end of the current season, and it is unclear whether he will stay on at the German giants having spent much of the current campaign on the bench.

Other German clubs including runaway leaders Dortmund and Hoffenheim have also expressed interest for Klose, who has scored 61 goals for Germany, Bild said.

"Miro earns a great deal of money with us," the paper quoted Bayern president Uli Hoeness as saying. "I don’t think he’d be interested in taking a big pay cut."
