Bayern close in on Van Nistelrooy
Ruud van Nistelrooy
Van Nistelrooy has made three requests to leave Man Utd
Bayern Munich say they have made a fresh bid for want-away Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"He wants to come to us. Now the ball's in Manchester United's court," Bayern general manager Uli Hoeness told the Bundesliga club's website on Sunday.

Real Madrid are also keen on signing Van Nistelrooy, who has fallen out with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Spanish giants have had one offer for the Dutchman, 30, rejected by United, who value him at around 15m.

"Ruud has told us he would like to play for us next season," Bayern club president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the Bild newspaper.

"We have already spoken about money with him but it would be United who will finally decide."

Van Nistelrooy, a 19m capture from PSV Eindhoven in 2001, is due to return to training with United on Monday.
