Real Madrid general director Jorge Valdano has denied reports that Arsenal have made an offer for striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The front-man only joined the Spanish giants 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 into 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 Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, with the Gunners believed to be eyeing either Huntelaar or Bordeaux forward Marouane Chamakh as a replacement for new Manchester City signing Emmanuel Adebayor. However, Real chief Valdano has since confirmed that Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart are the only club that have made an offer for Huntelaar's services to date. "Only one formal offer exists and that is Stuttgart's," he said.
