Miroslav Klose not for sale - Lazio

Lazio will not be tempted to cash in on Miroslav Klose's increased popularity following his record-breaking goal in Germany's extraordinary World Cup semifinal victory against Brazil.

- Carlisle: Klose fittingly pushes past Ronaldo
- Uersfeld: German media rave over epic win
- Transfer Talk: Navas, Ochoa hot

The 36-year-old forward netted the 16th goal of his World Cup career in the 7-1 demolition of the tournament hosts on Tuesday, a strike that has made him the competition's all-time leading scorer.

Despite the added interest in the striker following his landmark achievement against the Selecao, the Serie A side are not entertaining allowing the veteran poacher to leave Stadio Olimpico this summer.

"Now we have a champion who has scored the most goals in World Cups," Lazio president Claudio Lotito said to Italian radio station Rai Due.

"The figure he had to reach, he has already done so, regardless of whether or not he scores in the final.

"In order to receive offers for a player, he must be placed on the market and Klose is not for sale.''

The Biancocelesti celebrated Klose's achievement with a tweet that read: "Sixteen goals in World Cups, the best of all time. Miro Klose enters history. Miro Klose is the history."

Klose, who moved to Lazio from Bayern Munich in 2011 and has scored 35 league goals since then, is under contract with the Rome-based outfit for a further season.
