Former Man Utd striker Ruud van Nistelrooy will have a choice if he is told to leave Real Madrid as a second London club want him.

Tottenham Hotspur will not have a clear run in their bid to prise Ruud van Nistelrooy away from Real Madrid after Fulham registered their interest, according to a report.

The Dutch striker is seen as surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu by the new regime that has just taken charge and the club is welcoming offers.

Van Nistelrooy missed the majority of last term with a knee injury, but is back in full training and is expected to be ready to play again when pre-season starts across Europe in July.

Reports in England last week suggested that Tottenham had been told that they could sign van Nistelrooy for as little as £1.5 million (€1.7m).

With Roman Pavlyuchenko and Darren Bent both rumoured to be leaving White Hart Lane this summer, the former Manchester United forward would become first choice in Harry Redknapp's side.

That looked to be enough to persuade him to move back to the Premier League and to north London, but now ambitious Fulham have entered the picture, according to The Daily Telegraph.

After qualifying for Europe for next season, manager Roy Hodgson wants to add some experience to his squad and believes that van Nistelrooy would raise the club's profile too.
