[SPAIN] After a run of recent poor form and with striker Ruud van Nistelrooy out until the end of the season, Real Madrid is set to sign Ajax Amsterdam's prolific forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, according to Spanish media reports. The reports said the announcement will be officially made Tuesday.
 
The Madrid sports publications Marca and As reported the imminent signing on their websites. They said that Huntelaar, 25, has signed a five-and-a-half year contract running until 2014, and that the transfer fee was between $25 million and $31.5 million.
 
Huntelaar, who has been capped 18 times by the Dutch national team, scored 33 goals in 34 games last season. Overall, he has scored 70 times for Ajax in just 80 appearances. He came to Ajax from Heerenveen at the end of 2005 for $11.3 million.
