AS says Schuster held crunch talks with Mijatovic yesterday over Sunday's Supa Copa disaster and told his sports chief: "We needs goals. We need another No9."

Schuster doesn't regard Roberto Soldado as being ready for the pressure of playing for Real and told Mijatovic to send him away for another season on-loan and to bring in a replacement.

Top of the shopping list is Real Zaragoza striker Diego Milito, whose brother, Gaby, signed for Real's bitter rivals Barcelona this summer. Also in the frame is Ajax ace Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Mijatovic favours Huntelaar over the cheaper Milito after enjoying success this summer in landing his compatriots Wesley Sneijder, also formerly of Ajax, and Royston Drenthe from Feyenoord.
