The striker of Bayern Munich, which had fewer minutes than usual last year because of injuries, does not fit into the plans of Louis Van Gaal this season and is ready to move out this month. Klose has only played a total of 11 official matches for Bayern this season (7 League, 2 Cup and 2 Champions) since Thomas Muller and Mario Gomez are the starters in the Bavarians. But his scoring and his ability to perform always quality minutes is beyond doubt, as demonstrated in the last World Cup, despite having 32 years.
In the World Cup he scored four goals in five games, always playing as a starter. Furthermore he is still necessary for the Germany coach Joachim Low who has lined up as a starter in every game that Germany has played in the qualifiers for Euro 2012.
His contract with Bayern expires next June, and he has admitted that although he would like to stay in the German side, the sport situation is not the best and would welcome a transfer to a team from the Bundesliga or abroad. Juventus and Lazio could also be interested in signing.
The German player could not play in the Champions League with Real Madrid because he already participated in the competition with Bayern, which is a major handicap. The white team needs a striker but the market does not seem to have a player that fits the particular circumstances of the team.
