The Lord of the Ferg chases star from the continent

The Sun today shunned such gloriously crapulous headlines as ‘The Hunter becomes the Hunted’ and ‘This boy is Klaas’ and instead opted for the slightly mundane ‘Ferguson is back in the Hunt’.

Yep, Manchester United’s very own Lord of the Ferg is chasing long term target Klaas Jan ‘The Hunter’ Huntelaar from Ajax, he’s 24, a prolific striker, and as he is Dutch so every journalist with a pulse and a pen compares him to Ruud Van Nistelrooy. Sun journo Neil Custis roused himself from his urine soaked foxes midden to bring us this tabloid tale, so it’s only fitting that we pay him some lip service; he reckons that:

“Manchester United are preparing a £12million offer for long-term target Klaas Jan Huntelaar. Boss Alex Ferguson failed to get the prolific Ajax striker last January.”

So Huntelaar for United, a good move? And isn’t £12million a bit steep for a bench warmer?
