Whilst it's not definite that Ruud Van Nistelrooy will leave Manchester United this summer, there is certainly a queue forming at Old Trafford of clubs interested in his signature.
It is now apparent that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich will go head to head over the striker.
Despite being one of the most prolific scorers in recent Premiership history, Van Nistlerooy fell out of favour at Old Trafford after a reported bust-up between him and manager Sir Alex Ferguson. This cumulated in being dropped for the Carling Cup final and indeed last game of the season where he decided he'd rather watch all the action at home. Frenchman Louis Saha being preferred upfront.
Bayern kicked off the saga first, with their Presidente Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claiming that they 'know' that Ruud wants to join them. Real's president, (why do European clubs have loud-mouth presidents?) have stated that their new manager would be interested in bringing the Dutchman to the Berniebow.
It'll be interesting now to see what Sir Alex does, with the Rooney/Ronaldo storyline (turning into a soap opera isn't it!) rumbling on this could prove a great opportunity to clear out the dead wood and start again. This time really challenging for the Premiership title.
