Ruud can travel to Madrid (ManUtd.com)
Ruud van Nistelrooy has been given the go-ahead to undergo a medical with Real Madrid.
Reports on Thursday evening had suggested that a deal to take the striker to Spain had been sealed. However, a club statement has confirmed that these reports are premature.
A club spokeswoman told ManUtd.com: "Manchester United give permission for Ruud van Nistelrooy to travel to Real Madrid for a medical.
"However, terms of agreement are yet to be finalised between the two clubs."
If van the man goes to Real for £15m, which is what Utd want, then I think that would be a great bit of business. It would mean that Man U paid £4m (plus wages, obviously) for 150 goals in 5 years, which is not too shabby IMO. However, I doubt that it would be £15 mil, maybe just over 10.
