Real Madrid and Manchester United have agreed on a 15 million Euro deal according to Spanish daily AS.
Real Madrid had made a 15 million Euro offer yesterday, which Manchester United have accepted, despite earlier indications that they were planning to hold out for a higher sum.
Reports indicate the Dutch international, 30, will arrive in Madrid this evening, and is set to sign a three year deal worth 15 million Euros after tomorrow’s medical.
However, The Sun reports that Tottenham Hotspur have sized up a swap deal to land Ruud. Tottenham would send Michael Carrick, the midfielder so highly coveted by United, the other way.
Van Nistelrooy would be Real Madrid’s third big signing within a week, after Cannavaro and Emerson, if the Spanish giants are able to pip Tottenham to the deal.
