It appear that Dutch international striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar will not be given a chance to prove himself at Real Madrid as it has been reported that the club is close to agreeing the sale of striker to Bundesliga club Stuttgart.
Real sporting director Miguel Pardeza has revealed that the talented striker has become surplus to requirements after Real’s recent spending spree and did not travel with the squad on their pre-season trip to Dublin.
Pardeza told local reporters that the clubs are in very advanced talks regarding the transfer of the player and the best thing to do is to find a solution.
H e also believes that the player is aware of this situation and has opted to stay in Madrid to see if a final resolution can be found.
The striker had been linked with Manchester United, Milan and Tottenham in recent weeks.
Huntelaar scored eight goals in 22 appearances for Real Madrid after joining in January last season, with most of his appearances coming from the bench and the Dutch forward became surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu after Karim Benzema joined from Lyon, and Stuttgart were the only major side to follow up their interest in the ex-Ajax hit-man.
