Sir Alex sets his sights on a new striker and it just so happens that the fantastic finisher he wants happens to love Manchester United, which will surely help seal the deal!
Ajax striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has claimed Manchester United are ‘very interested’ in securing his services.
Contract talks between Ajax and Huntelaar recently broke down, leading to fresh speculation that the 24-year-old could be set to depart Amsterdam Arena this summer.
A number of top European clubs – including United, Arsenal and Real Madrid – have been linked with a swoop for the Holland international following his impressive form in the Eredivisie.
Ajax are hopeful the forward may reconsider his decision to turn down their latest contract offer, however Huntelaar has claimed that United are monitoring his situation closely.
“I love clubs with great history like Ajax, I also love United,” Huntelaar told Dutch reporters. “It’s a club that makes me dream, especially as Ruud van Nistelrooy played there and did great things with them.
“I know certain English clubs are following me, like Manchester United, who are very interested in me.” (Skysports)
Huntelaar is a sharp shooting lethal finisher who is just aching to show the world that scoring at will in the Dutch league is no mean feat. Klaas will no doubt be keen to replicate the kind of success that Ruud managed at Old Trafford. He won’t come cheap, the 24 year old is valued in the 22-24m bracket but let’s face it Man United have the cash especially if they offload traitorous Ronaldo for 60m+. Do United fans think that a Huntelaar/Rooney partnership would work wonders?
