Well thats what Marca say.

Rumours say there will be a few new faces in Real for Christmas. Rob Mancini instead of Schuster and Abo's summer target Huntelaar to fill Ruuds place since he's out for the season.

Since this is Reals biggest fanzine we all can make our own opinion about this...

Marca told about the new dutch signins before but were also wrong about Santi Cazorla, David Villa and a few other Spanish players.

Wouldn't be surprised, he said he wanted to stay and work with van Basten (i think) so now he has he'll probably bugger off :p Hopefully he'll stay there and then one day we might swoop for him ;)

They are now reporting this on skysports.com...

Ajax have confirmed they have opened talks with Real Madrid over the possible sale of Klaas Jan Huntelaar.

The Holland striker has been strongly linked with the Primera Division champions, with reports on Monday suggesting a deal is close to being finalised.

A number of top European sides have also been mooted as interested parties although a fee in the region of £20million has reportedly been agreed between Ajax and Real.

A statement read: "Ajax are in talks with Real Madrid over the possible sale of Klaas Jan Huntelaar to the Spanish club.

"However no deal has been agreed at the moment."

Real are thought to be keen to bolster their frontline after they lost Ruud van Nistelrooy to a long-term knee injury.

I think Huterlaar wants to continue his career at Real Madrid...It's a big club, even you are at his place and you are a ManUtd die hard fan...You dont want to miss to chance to join this massive club..Great background, great history and many great player....Even I think Real Madrid is a wasteland, Real Madrid are a Dream Wasteland...Legend history there such as Figo, Zidane....Great club, possibly he will make this move 70/100

AJAX NEWS
Real Madrid agree deal for striker Huntelaar

By Soccernet staff

December 2, 2008

Spanish champions Real Madrid have confirmed Ajax forward Klaas Jan Huntelaar will join the club in January.

The 25-year-old, who has long been linked with a move to Madrid, will sign a deal with the capital club until June 2013 subject to passing a medical.

According to the Ajax website, Huntelaar will join Madrid on January 2 for an initial 20million euros (£17m), rising to a potential 27million euros (£23m).

Madrid confirmed the deal in a statement posted on their own official website: ''Huntelaar is the new Real Madrid player. Real Madrid and Ajax Amsterdam have reached an agreement for the forward.

''As usual, the deal is dependent on the player passing a medical and the signing of his contract with Real Madrid. 'Klaas Jan Huntelaar will be tied to Real Madrid until June 30, 2013.''

Huntelaar is currently sidelined by an ankle injury which is set to rule him out until early 2009.

UEFA rules state that once the deal is completed Huntelaar can be eligible to be added to Madrid's squad for the Champions League, as he has only competed with Ajax this season in the UEFA Cup.

The deal, which will provide Real with cover for long-term injury victim Ruud van Nistelrooy, will earn Dutch club Heerenveen around €2.5million as part of the agreement Ajax signed when they signed the player in 2005.

"I grant Klaas Jan this transfer, though we preferred to finish this season with him," Ajax coach Marco van Basten was quoted as saying in a statement.

"It is logical when a club like Real Madrid is interested, to keep him here and at Ajax we need to focus on our future-oriented policy instead of one player."

After joining Ajax in January 2005 Huntelaar has gone on to become one of the most potent strikers in Europe, scoring 76 goals in 92 league matches for the Amsterdam team and netting 10 goals in 18 appearances for the Netherlands.

Seems a bit desperate to me, with Ruud injured, they're going for an un-proven striker. I mean, no offense, but a lot of strikers in Holland has scored more goals than they've played games. Anyway, good luck to him, I never wanted him here tbh.

Huntelaar agrees Real Madrid move

Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has agreed a £17m January transfer window move to Real Madrid.

The Ajax striker, 25, who will be the sixth Dutch player at the Bernabeu, will sign a contract until 2013.

A number of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United were thought to be tracking Huntelaar.

The Netherlands international will be seen as a replacement for Ruud van Nistelrooy, who will be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

As Ajax have only played in the Uefa Cup, he would be eligible to appear for Real in the Champions League. He top scored in the Dutch First Division with 33 goals in 34 games last season but is currently out of action with an ankle injury.

Ajax coach Marco van Basten said: "I grant Klaas-Jan this transfer, though we preferred to finish this season with him."

Real already have five Dutch players on their books in Van Nistelrooy, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben, Rafael van der Vaart and Royston Drenthe.

They have eight first-team squad members injured and have slipped to fourth place in the Spanish League, six points behind leaders Barcelona.


I just hope I was wrong about him in the summer...

sigh....

well those who said "if he's so good then why hasn't a major club bid for him?" this is your answer!

He will be good for them and quite honestly is the kind of goal-poacher and clinical finisher we currently don't have.

If you rephrase that question it will be more interesting...why did it take so long before some club signed him from the poor dutch league?

His stats are brilliant. I read that he have more then 160 goals as a senior footballer in around 220 games. Included in the stats is league football and playing for The Netherlands.

Im still not sure he would be the player for us. But I dont feel Berbatov have been WOW for us yet. So maybe....

Still...

Huntelaar getting sold when a 32 year old striker gets injured. I know there's many factors why the deal is done now but a player with such goal scoring stats should be more interesting on the market.

For that kind of money I think Huntelaar will be a better buy then what fools payed Spuds for Robbie Keane.
