According to Nikkan Sports, the Hiroshima Carp would like to see Hiroki Kuroda return to the club next season.  While the Carp won't be able to financially compete against other MLB clubs, they're hoping Kuroda's desire to return to Hiroshima will beat out any dollar / yen sign.

Said club GM Kiyoaki Suzuki, "I think he can see just how much we'd like to have him back. ... I'd like to talk to him with an open mind.  As a club, I'd like to present him with our best offer. ... It all depends on whether or not he wants to return to Hiroshima. I think it'll also depend on whether or not he feels he has unfinished business in the Majors."
