Rumor: Eintracht Frankfurt seek to gazump New York Red Bulls with one-year offer to Miroslav Klose

RBNY's alleged desire to land Miroslav Klose still isn't particularly plausible, and now it has (alleged) competition.

Citing Lazio Sporting Director Iglio Tare's comment that Miroslav Klose has wanted to return to Germany "since last year", Suddeutsche Zeitung's Birgit Schonau reports Eintracht Frankfurt is poised to repatriate the player.

Schonau suggests the (for the moment) Bundesliga club has tabled a one-year contract. It is also suggested the offer might be contingent on the team avoiding relegation by beating Nurnberg in an upcoming playoff to determine which side will have top-flight status next season.

Klose has been rumored to have interest from both Frankfurt and Wolfsburg to add to the offer allegedly made by the New York Red Bulls. A return home does seem the more likely option for the German striker, but that RBNY rumor won't quite go away.

Frankfurt should know whether it is still a Bundesliga club by May 23. Schonau's report advises Klose will probably make his decision by the end of this month. He will celebrate his 38th birthday on June 9.
