The Ajax striker is a target for Real and has asked Ruud van Nistelrooy, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder about the Madrid experience: "I've talked about many things with these guys, but nothing specific. I asked about how they live and the beautiful football that is played there, that sort of thing.

"It would be silly to say otherwise (about wanting to join Real Madrid). It is a team that I've always liked. They're building a group with chances of winning the Champions League and that is very important to me."
