Huntelaar cools United link

The Holland international has been in imperious form in the

Bundesliga for Schalke this season after being a target for Russian

side Rubin Kazan in the summer. Only last month, Huntelaar was

linked with a January transfer to United as part of a swap deal

which would see Dimitar Berbatov head to Schalke. However, the

former Ajax ace has shrugged off rumours surrounding his future and

is fully focused on impressing for his current club. “I know

nothing of alleged interest from Manchester United,” Huntelaar said

to Voetbal International. “I will not even speculate, I am

concentrating fully on Schalke. “I’ll let any offers come to me

quietly and will then see what happens. This is the attitude I’ve

always had. “My contract runs until the summer of 2013. If they

[Schalke] want to talk, I’ll gladly listen.”
