Transfer Trouble

Real Madrid’s €20m January signing already wants to leave

If you thought Robbie Keane’s time at Liverpool was fleeting…

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

After fending off competition from Arsenal, Chelsea and Juventus, Real Madrid secured the signature of Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for €20m just before the January transfer window.

Despite making just five appearances for Los Blancos (151 minutes on the pitch), the former Ajax man is already planning an exit strategy.

Bungling Madrid sporting director Predrag Mijatović didn’t help the situation by also signing Lassana Diarra in the window. Mijatović clearly neglected the UEFA laws mean the club may only pick one of their new men for Champions League duty. Unfortunately for Huntelaar, they picked Diarra.

The miserable Dutchman spoke to AS, possibly while crying:

“I can’t stand this situation anymore. They [Madrid] have neither included me for the Champions League nor do they want to play me in La Liga. Juande [Ramos] does not have any confidence in me. I want to leave Madrid. I can’t bear this.”

    Liverpool need him more. They have 1 proven striker.

    Kyut is played on the right wing and is know around these parts as Liverpools ugly tevez. Take that for what you will.

    Babel is shit.

    And Ngog has to be an inside joke that no one else “gets”
