Lazy Saturday Poll: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar at €20m?

He hunts with a [fun]ing CANNON! No wonder he scores so many.

In a moment of loose lips that Horst Heldt may soon regret, the Schalke 04 president has let slip that the man they call The Hunter has a buy-out clause of €20m in his contract. On first glance, this seems rather cheap for a player who found the back of the net 29 times in 32 Bundesliga matches this season.

What may deter potential suitors is the striker's age: he will turn 29 in August, and perhaps the fact before this season, he had struggled for consistent form for a good 2-3 seasons. Then again, that didn't stop Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester United from being linked with the Dutchman in the past.

Anyway, what do you say? Would you spend the money on a striker who's older than Fernando Torres? Is €20m too much to spend on a back-up to the proverbial first-choice Spaniard?

Discuss away. Bonus points will be awarded for spurious mentions of Fernando Torres and extra credit is available should you descend into ad hominem attacks. Please conduct yourselves with...klaas...
