Ajax confirm Real Huntelaar talks
Tuesday 02 December 2008
Ajax confirmed today they have opened talks with Real Madrid over the possible sale of captain Klaas Jan Huntelaar to the Spanish champions.
Speculation over Huntelaar's future has intensified over the past 24 hours with Ajax releasing a statement last night denying a deal had already been agreed.
However, they did confirm this morning that talks had started over the transfer of a player linked with a host of Barclays Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City.
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."
