Real Madrid Reportedly Sign Ajax's Huntelaar

Real Madrid TalkContributor IDecember 1, 2008

Marca, AS, El Mundo, Cadena SER and Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, have all confirmed that Real Madrid signed Ajax' striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for an unknown fee.

The striker has been chased by many European clubs, however, it seems that he wanted to join his Dutch friends in Madrid.

Huntelaar's record is very impressive. He has scored 75 goals in 90 matches he played for his club and with his national team he scored seven goals in just 11 matches.

Huntelaar will be able to play in the Champions League after he recovers from his injury  in January.

He'll certainly strengthen Real Madrid's attacking line. I have always thought that David Villa would be better because he is more experienced, Spanish, and a world class player, but getting him is pretty difficult. I'm convinced that the club made a good signing because if you look at the strikers availablei n the market, you'd realize that it is rare that there is one capable of playing for Real Madrid.

Some people might argue that Benzema would have been a better choice, but I think that Real paid a reasonable fee for Huntelaar, while if we wanted Benzema we would have paid something like $70m, which is a lot of money.

So, Ramon Calderon promised that he'd announce two signings today.

This is the first one , apparently, who do you think is the second? Arshavin or Tevez?

Hala Madrid!
