In the biggest transfer story since the Ibrahimovich/Eto’o swap, Dutch striker, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar departed Real Madrid for AC Milan this week. “The Hunter” who had been deemed surplus by the new brass at the Bernabeu, made his way into the Rossoneri camp for a reported 15 million Euros.
With Madrid’s fresh new crop of “Galacticos” apparently primed and ready to take the pitch, speculations are rife as to what will happen to the rest of Real’s Dutch contingent.
Even regular starter Arjen Robben looks to be facing a season of bench warming. Whereas Wesley Sneijder Rafael Van Der Vaart, Royston Drenthe and the perpetually injured Ruud Van Nistelrooy look set to be pushed even further down the pecking order.
Yet with more than three weeks remaining in the transfer market it seems highly possible that regular starting places on good teams could be found for all these talented, highly capable, brilliant Oranje.
