Nistelrooy could join Roma on loan

The former Manchester United ace has long been linked with a move to the Italian capital and FIFA agent Mino Raiola believes he could join Roma on loan in January.

“Van Nistelrooy is finding little space at Real. His goal is the World Cup and he wants to persuade the Dutch coach to take him to South Africa. When big teams are involved, I never see problems with transfers,” he told Radio Radio.

“If the player agrees, an operation is feasible. There would be a paid salary for only six months. However, I don’t know the opinion of [coach Claudio] Ranieri and Roma.”
