The Hunter Will Stay

As i said earlier, do not believe everything you read. Apparently, the Rossoneri will not be buying any new players nor will they be selling any of their current players.

Contrary to reports that Huntelaar was in England to negotiate with EPL clubs Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City about a possible transfer, his agent Arnold Oosterveer has denied the claims stating that they were just nothing but rumours.

“I have read many things in the papers recently, but there is nothing true,” he told Sport.co.uk.

“There have been no offers from the Premier League. His intention is to stay with Milan.

“In addition, the club have never shown an interest in selling him.”

In my opinion, Huntelaar is one of Milan’s most talented players. Despite a poor showing last season, the 26 year old still has the potential to become a legend in the club.

His keen eye for goal and pace are qualities that Milan will desperately need when they take on Lecce in their opening game of the 2010/2011 campaign at the San Siro on August 28th.

Milan’s first two games are against relatively weak sides and they should capitalise on this if they are to become serious challengers for the scudetto. However, their 2-0 loss to Varese last week raises a few concerns.

Milan have recently started to build a reputation of losing matches which they should be winning. This coupled with their ever poor start in the Serie A has been the main reason why they do not perform as well as they should.

Inter on the other hand have dominated the league these past few years because of their consistency. If Huntelaar becomes a regular fixture in Allegri’s squad, then you can be certain that the Rossoneri would have at least solved a part of their problem.

The other part would be for them to acquire some youth in their squad-however unlikely this is.
