Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has admitted that he is interested in bringing Dutch striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy back to England from Real Madrid.
The 33-year-old former Manchester United frontman has also been linked with Liverpool in recent weeks, having dropped down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Redknapp told reporters:"He is interesting. I wouldn't sit here and say it isn't of interest, but again it would depend what the deal is because the chairman would deal with that side of the business.
"But he is an interesting player. He was a fantastic player in England and he has been a great player over the years and is a great goalscorer and if he was available it could be of interest – that's about as far as it's gone.
"I wouldn't want to say 'no, we're not interested' and then two weeks down the line we go and do something. I wouldn't do that, that isn't right.
"It's not impossible that if it was right we could be interested."
