MALAGA CF manager Bernd Schuster is reportedly being lured to German club Eintracht Frankfurt, after meeting with officials from the German side.

Reports in the German press suggest Schuster, a former Germany international, held secret talks with Eintracht Frankfurt’s club president and sporting director after they flew to the Costa del Sol to meet him last week.

After a turbulent season with Malaga, it has been suggested a clause in Schuster’s contract will allow him to leave should they fail to finish in the top half of the league.

However, the 54-year-old has previously claimed he wants to stay with Los Boquerones.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s current manager Armin Veh is set to leave the Bundesliga club this summer and because of the uncertainty at Malaga, Schuster has been identified as his first choice replacement.

The former Real Madrid boss has never managed in the German flight before, with his only managerial experience in his home country coming in the second division with Fortuna Koln and then FC Koln.
