According to the official site, Real Madrid have returned with a second bid for Ruud van Nistelrooy.

A Madrid spokesman is quoted saying: ‘The club have made a new offer and are waiting for reply from Manchester.’

Sir Alex Ferguson was asked about the situation and said there was no news ”None at all. At this moment in time….He trained well yesterday. He had a good attitude to his training, which is good, therefore he’s a United player.’

Manchester United have again been linked with Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe, with reports suggesting Utd will bid around £12million for the player.
