Russian club Spartak Moscow have reportedly held talks with USA national team manager Juergen Klinsmann.
Reports in Russian daily Izvestia suggest that Spartak chiefs spoke with Klinsmann regarding the vacancy at the Lokomotiv Stadium left by the departure of Valeri Karpin earlier this week.
Spartak director Dmitry Popov is currently in the US and met up with the former Tottenham, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Stuttgart striker to discuss the possibility of he taking charge of the Red-Whites after this summer's World Cup.
Klinsmann is preparing his US side for world football's biggest tournament in Brazil and is pondering his options for the future.
However, it appears a move to Moscow is not quite on the cards with Spartak reported to be on the verge of reaching an agreement with current Amkar Prem boss and former Spartak manager Stanislav Cherchesov to take over at the end of the current season.
