Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster has again admitted he wants to sign Ajax striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

He said: "This boy is very similar to (Ruud) van Nistelrooy and Marco van Basten. It seems that they had made a clone in a laboratory. He has things of Van Nistelrooy and of Van Basten. He moves in a similar way, he's tall, shoots with both two feet and is good in the air.

"In addition, like these uncles, he's come from a good school, learns quickly and is a good professional. That gives you security when you sign them. Here, he will not get 30 goals like there, but at the most he will score maybe five less…"
