Dutch club hold discussions over sale of striker

Ajax have confirmed they have opened talks with Real Madrid over the possible sale of Klaas Jan Huntelaar. The Holland striker has been strongly linked with the Primera Division champions, with reports on Monday suggesting a deal is close to being finalised. A number of top European sides have also been mooted as interested parties although a fee in the region of £20million has reportedly been agreed between Ajax and Real. A statement read: "Ajax are in talks with Real Madrid over the possible sale of Klaas Jan Huntelaar to the Spanish club. "However no deal has been agreed at the moment." Real are thought to be keen to bolster their frontline after they lost Ruud van Nistelrooy to a long-term knee injury.
