It would be Ruud not to!

It would be Ruud not to!

According to todays press our selves and Tottenham are in the race to sign Ruud van Nistelrooy, The report suggests Real Madrid are ready to let the Dutch hitman go for just £1.25million.

Van Nistelrooy, 32, has been out with a serious knee injury since November but expects to be fit by the start of next season.

With only a year left on his Real deal, Van Nistelrooy is available for a cut-price fee howevervhe would still expect a wage of £70,000-a-week.

Now this would be my dream signing (except maybe van der sar returniong, Van der Vaart, Sneijder, Robben or Engelaar signing)however his wage will be a huge problem.

We were linked with him as well. Would be a brilliant addition for any team!

I don't know what the implications of his most recent injury might be (torn meniscus), but if he's fit for the season starting, there's no reason to think he won't be a HUGE asset to any Premiership side. Although I can't imaging Al Fayed stumping up £70k a week on his wages and I should think there will be clubs who will be happy to.

Yes he'd be a fantastic signing but: - AJ would have to go to accomodate his wages. - At 32, he would be a two season long signing.

In my opinion, Ruud is still the best pure center forward in the world. Profoundly lazy, but you won't find a better finisher. Don't remember the injury being so severe that they'd just give him away for £1.25m.

"no contest." I agree. Why would he want to be a self-loathing Spur? Besides, you guys are only interested in over spending for marginal talent and then complaining incessantly about it. Speaking of which, has 'Arry signed Downing yet?

It really would be no contest Sambo. Wether you like it or not Spurs are for more likely to stump up an attractive wage offer than you guys. That said I doubt he'll sign for either. I'd expect him to retire at RM or go back to holland.

Totally, if I were Ruud, I would choose Fulham in a hearbeat! Why on EARTH would he join Spuds? To fight relegation??
