Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar would shine as a Manchester United player, according to former Ipswich and United midfielder Arnold Muhren. The 25-year-old front-man only arrived from Ajax in January, netting eight league goals in 20 appearances. However, the Dutchman's future at the Bernabeu - along with several of his fellow countrymen - has been cast in doubt following the return of former president Florentino Perez, who has already splashed more than €200 million on stellar signings including Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. Huntelaar has been linked with a move to several Premier League clubs, including United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. NEWS: Stuttgart bid to bag Huntelaar And Muhren, who made 70 appearances for the Red Devils from 1982-85 - winning the FA Cup twice - is confident the striker would be a huge success at Old Trafford working with Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen. "The way the market has gone this summer then Klaas-Jan would be an absolute bargain," he told the Manchester Evening News. "If United are looking to replace the goals lost through Ronaldo's sale then Huntelaar comes as near as you can get with a guarantee to score them. "He's a goalscorer. Very, very dangerous in the box. He scored 76 league goals in 92 appearances for Ajax and despite what some people might tell you, that is not easy. "He would be another good option for United with Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov. "Owen is fast over the first two or three yards and can win the balls put over the top. Rooney is a great talent and works hard and scores goals. I love Berbatov's kind of arrogant style. With Huntelaar added to that department it would be a great mix." UNITED FANS!
