The rumours linking Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to Manchester United are doing rounds all year long and have been doing so ever since Ruud van Nistelrooy was rumoured to be leaving the club.
This season they’ve linked Huntelaar to Real Madrid as well, presumably because people think Madrid are thinking of replacing RvN or at least getting in a replacement ahead of time.
Is there any other serious link apart from the Dutch connection?
haven’t even had Huntelaar watched, they (in retrospect this is bollocks – they’ve probably had him scouted out but not done anything about it) have been interested in Berbatov for a long time and in recent years Ferguson has preferred to wait for his players instead of going out and signing backup replacements (the way he waited one year for Hargreaves).
Madrid themselves have said that they’re not looking to make any more signings this summer, although the press continues to link them to other players.
So here’s a prediction – Huntelaar isn’t moving this summer. Just like the other ‘big’ transfers that didn’t happen.
