Van Nistelrooy signs one-year deal with Malaga
Thursday 02 June 2011
Striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has passed a medical and signed a one-year contract with Malaga, the Spanish club said today.
The 34-year-old Dutch international will be presented to fans later in the day, as he returns to La Liga after an 18-month spell with Hamburg SV.
Van Nistelrooy has won league titles in the Netherlands with PSV Eindhoven, in England with Manchester United and in Spain with Real Madrid, and has 34 international goals to his name.
Malaga were bought by a member of the Qatari royal family last year and although they narrowly avoided relegation last month, have outlined ambitious plans to try and turn the modest club into a major force in Spain.
