“Huntelaar does have a €20 million buyout clause, and the rich club can afford it,”
“But, Klaas Jan has always stressed that he wants to be a champion. This he can be only with Real or Barcelona in Spain.
“I do not think he wants to go there. What would he do there? Since nothing more than the weather is better.”
