Ruud van Nistelrooy leaves Man United, as Michael Carrick walks in.
Real Madrid have confirmed that Manchester United’s Ruud van Nistelrooy has passed a medical, and would be formally unveiled as a Real Madrid player. The Dutchman becomes the second high-profile player to move from Old Trafford to the Bernabeu in the last three years. van Nistelrooy, whose prolific goalscoring brought United top honours in the Premier League in 2003, will now be reunited with David Beckham.
Reports suggest that Manchester United have signed English midfielder Michael Carrick from London side, Tottenham Hotspur. The 25 year-old is expected to fill the void created by the sudden departure of talismanic captain Roy Keane last November. The deal is reportedly worth 15 million pounds.
There are rumours than United may also sign Argentinian Javier Mascherano. It is yet to be seen if Sir Alex Ferguson will add another striker to the Red Devils frontline.
