Huntelaar, who is set to start Sunday's World Cup final against Spain on the bench, endured a frustrating debut season with Milan last term.
The former Ajax and Real Madrid hit-man saw his first-team chances limited at Milan and he found himself playing out of position at the San Siro.
A number of Premier League clubs, including Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool are thought to be waiting in the wings to sign Huntelaar and the 26-year-old has indicated he could be interested in a move to England.
"My first focus is on the final and then after that it will be on AC Milan so we will see what happens when I get back to Italy," Huntelaar told The People.
"But the truth is I want to play football - I don't want to be just sitting on the bench - so we will see what happens.
"Of course, the Champions League is important and every player wants to play there but the most important thing for me is simply to play.
"That is the number one priority."
