Huntelaar to leave Real for Milan
Thursday 06 August 2009
AC Milan have confirmed they have reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of Klass Jan Huntelaar to the Italian club.
A statement on the club's website revealed the 25-year-old striker will arrive in Milan tomorrow to undergo a medical.
Huntelaar is then set to sign a deal until June 2013 with the Rossoneri.
Madrid also confirmed the move in a short statement on their official website.
Holland international Huntelaar only moved to the Bernabeu from Ajax in January, but has found life difficult in Spain and has been unable to hold down a regular starting spot in the side.
The arrival of several big-name players over the summer - including Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema - saw Huntelaar pushed even further down the attacking order and Madrid made it clear they would listen to offers for the Dutchman.
A proposed move to Stuttgart was turned down by the player while Tottenham had also expressed an interest in Huntelaar, who scored eight goals in 20 Primera Division appearances.
But Milan appear to have won the race for his signature, with Huntelaar now set to line up alongside former international team-mate Clarence Seedorf next season.
