Huntelaar denies Real exit talk

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar's representative insists the Netherlands international does not want to leave Real Madrid.

A story in AS on Monday suggested the 25-year-old wanted to leave the Bernabeu despite only moving to Spain from Ajax a matter of weeks ago.



However, Arnold Oosterveer has dismissed the reports, telling Marca: "The boy never said that he wants to leave Madrid. I have talked to him and he has denied these rumours. He never said that at all.



"It is normal that he is not happy because players always hope for more time. He will not play in the Champions League, but I think he will play a lot more in the league.



"I categorically deny that Klaas does not get on with Juande Ramos. When a player does not always play, people always want to create a controversy.



"He is 25 and it is normal that he wants to play. But he wants to do that with Real Madrid and he will continue to try and convince Juande Ramos to give him more playing time."



Meanwhile, Villarreal’s injury problems have worsened after it was confirmed that Gonzalo Rodriguez faces more than a month on the sidelines with the thigh injury he suffered in the 2-1 victory against Numancia.



Yellow Submarine coach Manuel Pellegrini has been without Nihat Kahveci and Joseba Llorente for much of the season and has seen his side slip to fifth in the La Liga table.



Gonzalo managed to play the full 90 minutes against Numancia but complained about the extent of his injury after the final whistle.



The 24-year-old former San Lorenzo player’s decision to stay on the pitch for the full game may mean that he faces a longer spell on the sidelines.



Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has moved to quash renewed speculation about Sergio Aguero by insisting the player is staying with the club.



The player's father admitted last week that Aguero could leave the Vicente Calderon in the summer and sign for Real Madrid, but Cerezo doubts that will happen.



"I am 100 per cent convinced that Aguero will not join Real Madrid and that he will continue here," he told Veo Futbol.



"The club are not prepared to sell him and we are not going to. However, if he wants to leave, then that is another matter."
