Jurgen Klinsmann is all smiles after guiding the USA to the World Cup knockout stage.

Turkish club Galatasaray is looking to fill its managerial job, and U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann is reportedly on its short list

One of the candidates is former Manchester United manager David Moyes, but the club's top targets are currently coaching their nations in the 2014 FIFA World Cup - Klinsmann and Germany's Joachim Löw, according to the Telegraph.

"The president has given a speech about it," a club spokesman said. "He said that we just spoke with David Moyes and he said that he can come to Galatasaray but he is not one of the main targets for us. They just spoke to each other, exchanging ideas - that it is it. It is true the president talked with David Moyes.

"We are not in a rush, we are waiting for the end of the World Cup. The first two targets are Low or Klinsmann."

Klinsmann signed a four-year extension with United States soccer in December to remain the manager through 2018. As part of the deal, he also became technical director with oversight of the youth national teams and player development.

Klinsmann has previously managed at the club level with Bayern Munich, but he has found success with the United States, bringing the Americans to the round of 16 out of the tough Group G. This isn't the first report linking Klinsmann to an outside job in recent years, with Tottenham and the Switzerland national team also reportedly showing past interest.
