Klaas-Jan Huntelaar hopes his brace against Udinese will be enough to keep him in the side to face Manchester United in the Champions League.

The Dutch forward has found it difficult to hold down a regular spot since his switch to AC Milan from Real Madrid back in August.

However the 26-year-old made an impressive impact for Leonardo's side in a 3-2 win over Udinese, scoring two in Friday night's Serie A game.

"I'm satisfied. Now I hope to have more chances to play, but I'm happy," he said.

"I don't want to leave AC Milan without having shown that I deserve this jersey."

Huntelaar is also keen to carry on his goalscoring displays against United, who have been linked with a move for the former Ajax striker, and wants to feature for the Italian side in Tuesday's Champions League fixture.

On the Red Devils, he added: "We are ready for a much-awaited appointment. I don't know yet if I'll play but I'd really like to."
