Redknapp spotted wining and dining Van Nistelrooy’s agent

Ruud – good signing for Spurs?

Away from the muddy pitches and changing rooms that smell of Deep Heat and wet socks, the world of football is a glamourous one. It’s all cordoned off cocktail drinking areas in wine bars, personal shoppers, and snazzy dinners.

One such meal enjoyed very very recently by Henry Redknapp, who has been spotted scoffing an intimate three-courser with Rodger Linse – known in the trade as “Ruud van Nistelrooy’s agent”.

According to today’s Daily Mail, the Dutchman has already rejected a possible move to Turkey, and still seems keen to return to his old stomping ground, the Premier League. And with Redknapp determined for a top four finish, a proven goalscorer could be just the ticket.

In the words of the Daily Mail:

“… Tottenham’s boss is hoping that his own record of giving other veteran stars a great swansong to their careers will convince Van Nistelrooy to join…”

But what do YOU think? A decent signing for the club? Or just another one of those expensive middle-aged bench-warmers that seem so “a la mode” this year?
