Ajax have confirmed they have opened talks with Real Madrid over the possible sale of Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
The Dutch striker has been linked with the Primera Division champions, with reports on Monday suggesting a deal is close to being completed.
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 keen to strengthen their frontline after they lost Ruud van Nistelrooy to a long-term knee injury.
