Following Rafa Benitez’s denial that he is in the market for Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Tony Pulis will try his hand at attracting the Dutch striker to the Britannia Stadium.
It is thought that Pulis will offer Van Nistelrooy a starting berth allowing him to prove himself ready to lead the Dutch line in South Africa.
Van Nistelrooy’s contract expires this summer so he is free to speak to clubs regarding a move but Stoke will want him immediately, so rather than pay a fee to Real Madrid for a player that that they could get for free in months they will probably attempt to sign him on loan.
[Is there any substance to this and should this rumour Fly or Die?]
