Would Jurgen Klinsmann leave the U.S. soccer team to coach a club team in Turkey? Galatasaray seems to hope so. A spokesman for the Turkish power said Friday the club is targeting Klinsmann, along with Germany Coach Joachim Low, to become its next coach after it parted ways with Roberto Mancini after last season.

Galatasaray met with David Moyes, who was fired by Manchester United in April, on Friday but told him they weren’t interested, ESPN is reporting.

“They just spoke to each other, exchanging ideas — that it is it. It is true the president talked with Moyes,” a Galatasaray spokesman said, per ESPN. “We are not in a rush — we are waiting for the end of the World Cup. The first two targets are Low or Klinsmann.”
It would seem unlikely that either Klinsmann or Low would take the job. Both recently signed contract extensions — Klinsmann’s contract runs through the 2018 World Cup — and Klinsmann has made his home in California for some time.
Galatasaray finished second in the Turkish Super Lig last season and will again compete in the Champions League after advancing to the round of 16 last season.
