Holland and Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has said he expects to be returning to Old Trafford next season unless he is told otherwise.

The 29-year-old, who was our top scorer last season, told the Sun that he didn’t know what had gone wrong at the end of last season but added in The Sun

‘I’ve two years left on my deal and, unless anybody tells me differently, I’ll return to Manchester for pre-season training.’

Ruud was left out of the last game of the season following a training ground bust up with Cristiano Ronaldo, an incident that they have both now distanced themselves from saying ‘it was nothing’.

Vital Manchester United held a poll last week on van Nistelrooy.

69% said he should be kept IF he wants to stay. 13% said he should be kept at all costs, 12% opted for the ‘get rid, we can cope without him’ option and just 6% said if he doesn’t like it here, flog him!
