Argentine striker surprised by Bernabeu speculation

Inter Milan striker Hernan Crespo admits that speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid has come as a surprise. Real are rumoured to have set their sights on the Argentina international as a replacement for the injured Ruud van Nistelrooy. And with Crespo finding first-team opportunities hard to come by at Inter, conjecture has suggested that Real could consider a bid in the January transfer window. But the 33-year-old insists he has yet to receive contact from Real, and that he is shocked by the stories. "All this is a surprise for me," Crespo - who has also been linked with Roma - told AS. "I swear I know nothing." Reports in Italy also suggest that Real have targeted Juventus striker Amauri in their efforts to fill Van Nistelrooy's long-term void.
