Real Madrid have accepted a £19m bid from VFB Stuttgart for Klaas Jan Huntelaar, the deal depending on the Dutch striker to decide on his future and where he wants to go. After yesterdays rumours around the massively expensive Argentinean international Aguero the question now is ‘Huntelaar or Aguero, with or without Berbatov’?
Huntelaar is several years older than Aguero and has only experienced the Dutch League before his 6 rather successful months at Real Madrid (40% strike rate over 20 appearances). Sergio Aguero is 5 years younger but almost 3 times as expensive. Where’s the difference and who would we prefer at Old Trafford? Can we do without Berbatov’s assists?
I think only SAF will be able to decide this one but as far as I’m concerned my preferences go to the Argentinean international. He’s fast on the counter and although very often he will penetrate too deep ((Often almost to the rightpost)) he still seems to have the eye for the incoming striker. Huntelaar from his part has a much more powerful shot from the second line, something we have missed ever since the glory days of Paul Scholes. Something Benzema could have brought us, but also something we can expect from Michael Carrick when he finally discovers his distance shot again. [Read more…]
