Huntelaar - all that glitters is not gold?...

So why is it that despite Klaas-Jan Huntelaar being linked to any number of clubs and his fawning come and get me to plea Real Madrid recently no one has so far made a move to sign him? No one that we know of at any rate, because for all we know negotiations could be ongoing without the unwelcome full glare of the media, which if so, is no bad thing.

It's not the first time that I have posted on the subject of Huntelaar, I was recently listening to Frans Thijssen the former Ipswich Town star who spoke in less than glowing terms about the ability of his fellow compatriot, in his considered opinion the young Dutch striker isn't that quick or skilful...my alarms bells have been ringing ever since if I'm honest regarding the prospect of the player arriving at United this summer.

Huntelaar's club Ajax also failed to qualify for European football next season which is damning considering the size of the club and some of that must reflect on their strikers. The Ajax star was only a bit part player in Euro 2008 too.

The fact that no big Italian or Spanish clubs look to be interested in signing Huntelaar doesn't necessarily mean he's a bad player - because it was exactly the same with Van Nistelrooy as United were the only serious bidders. Nonetheless, I have a concern that Huntelaar could turn out to be a case of all that glitters is not gold.
