Huntelaar talks up desire to play in Bundesliga

Ajax striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar believes he will play in Germany one day, admitting: "As as striker I am always interesting for other clubs".

The Amsterdammers captain has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Holland in recent years with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid reportedly interested but has remained in his homeland so far.

However, the 25-year-old admits he could be sold by Ajax when a club comes calling "with a big bag of money".

Huntelaar, who will miss tonight's UEFA Cup clash with Hamburg due to an ongoing ankle injury, said: "I can imagine that I will play in the Bundesliga one day.

"But at the moment I am fully focused on Ajax. When a club comes by with a big bag of money though, Ajax will have to consider.

"If it is better for me and for the club, it can be possible that Ajax will decide to sell me."

Various clubs are regularly linked with the striker and Huntelaar admits Schalke, who lost out on Champions League football in the qualification stages earlier this season, made an approach for his signature.

"That's correct. Schalke 04 wanted to sign me," he said. "It happens more often that interested club contact us. As a striker I am always interesting for other clubs."
