Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is expected in Madrid on Monday to meet with the Real Madrid hierarchy to discuss the potential signing of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, according to reports in France. L'equipe claims Levy wishes to acquire the 25-year-old Dutch forward after talks broke down with Ruud van Nistelrooy due to the 32-year-old's £80,000 a week wage demands. Although the former Ajax star only joined Madrid in January and is under contract until 2013, Huntelaar may find first team opportunities hard to come by if, as expected, David Villa arrives at the Bernabeu in the coming weeks. Huntelaar has scored eight goals in 20 La Liga outings since moving to the Spanish giants for €20 million, having previously scored an amazing 105 times in 136 games over three and a half years with Ajax. This is not the first time Tottenham have been linked with the Dutch international. Last summer the North London club were said to have attempted to sign Huntelaar from Ajax, only to turn their attentions to Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.
