Ruud Van Nistelrooy completes Real Madrid move

Prolific Dutch forward,Ruud Van Nistelrooy has completed his transfer to Real Madrid.German giants Bayern Munich were also in the running for the striker ever since his end season feud with Sir Alex Ferguson,but Real managed to clinch his signature.Van Nistelrooy,30,becomes new Real coach Fabio Capello’s third signing of the new season,after Emerson and Fabio Cannavaro.

Ruud who scored 150 goals in 219 games at Old Trafford ,stormed out of Old Trafford after being left out in favour of Louis Saha for the League Cup final and a transfer always looked imminent.At the Bernabeu,he will pair up with the man off whose crosses used to feed him at Old Trafford,David Beckham. With Ronaldo,Raul and Ruud the three ‘R’s represent the best strikeforce in Europe at this moment,atleast on paper, for Real Madrid.

Van Nistelrooy said that he was happy to play for “the best club in the world”.His signing adds to the galaxy of stars who play in the La Liga,which also include the likes of  Ronaldinho,Villa,Torres……..

With this signing the Real Madrid -Barcelona battle will be one interesting battle to watch in the La Liga this season. Madrid haven’t won a major title for years now,and Capello will be keen to change the trend.But Barcelona with the signings of Zambrotta and Thuram look stronger than ever and won’t give up their title so easily.
