The opening of the January transfer window is literally hours away and the number of rumours in the BBC gossip column is beginning to grow and grow.
Ruud Van Nistelrooy to Liverpool is one such rumour which appears in the column this today.
The Real Madrid striker has been linked with a move back to the Premier League for a number of months now after the 33-year old admitted he may have to leave the Bernabeu in January in order to play first team football, in this, a World Cup year.
The former Manchester United man has made just 4 appearances for Real this season scoring just once in the process. Since leaving Old Trafford back in 2006, Van Nistelrooy has scored over 60 goals for the Spanish giants, despite the fact he spent almost a whole season out of action through injury.
Rafa Benitez clearly needs to bring in a new frontman during next month’s window and personally I think he could do a lot worse than signing Van Nistelrooy on a six-month loan deal. We all know that Ruud can score goals, however he is getting on a bit so it will be interesting to see, if he did move to Anfield, how often he would play.
