Madrid, Dec 3 (DPA) Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has signed with Real Madrid, the Spanish club confirmed after reaching an agreement with Ajax Amsterdam.”The agreement is of course contingent upon the player passing a physical and signing his contract with Real Madrid. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will play for Real Madrid through June 30, 2013,” Real Madrid said on its website Tuesday.
The Spanish giant will reportedly pay close to 20 million euros ($25.4 million) to the forward’s current club.
Huntelaar, 25, is expected to fill the vacuum left by his countryman Ruud van Nistelrooy, who will miss the rest of the season due to injury.
