"Klaas could make the step up to a top-level club in Europe this summer," Huntelaar's agent Arnold Oosterveer told the Daily Express. "He likes English football and watches The Premier League.

"Of course he would love to join United. He wants to make the next step."

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has not yet finalised his summer targets, but he could face competition for Huntelaar.

"A player who scores 33 goals in one season is interesting for every top club," added Oosterveer. "Real Madrid are looking at him, as are a number of other European clubs."
