Ajax doesn‘t get a transfer fee for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. Out of respect, the club has terminated the 37-year-old striker’s contract.
That‘s what Sky Deutschland reports. Huntelaar had a contract until the end of the season and would therefore be able to deliver Ajax a small amount, but makes the switch to Schalke 04 free of charge. That’s good because the German club has hardly any spending space.
In Germany we talk about a fairy that Huntelaar gets when Ajax becomes champion. He would normally receive that amount from Ajax, but now he gets from Schalke, should the Amsterdammers become first in the Eredivisie.
Huntelaar was medical inspected in Gelsenkirchen on Monday evening. The announcement of the clubs will not be long in coming. He draws until the end of the season.
