Van Nistelrooy For Toon? Sunday Sun Gets It Wrong Again!

Last updated : 18 August 2008 By Footy Mad - Editor

Yesterday they tried to increase newspaper sales (and sales have dropped by a third in recent years) by telling us "Newcastle have failed in a sensational bid for Ruud van Nistelrooy".

Sunday Sun: "United owner Mike Ashley is hellbent on one of them (signings) being a superstar capable of boosting flagging ticket sales at St James's Park.

"And sources in Spain last night confirmed that Newcastle approached both Van Nistelrooy and Real Madrid in an attempt to land the Dutch striker following the Euro 2008 finals."

We have contacts in Spain and they claim ... as usual ... the Sunday Sun report is a load of bollox!

Come on Sunday Sun ... prove us wrong ... who are your contacts?
