Real Madrid president assures Van Nistelrooy over new contract

Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon insists Ruud van Nistelrooy will be handed a new contract next month.

Real sources told AS that Calderon took a seat alongside Van Nistelrooy for the squad's flight to Barcelona on Saturday and assured him over his new contract.

"Ruud, how are you? You should not worry about anything about your contract renewal," said Calderon. "You have my commitment that after you return from Christmas holidays we are going to renew you. We will do it in January.

"We are very pleased with your attitude and your form and you deserve to be renewed by Real Madrid."

Van Nistelrooy replied: "Thank-you, president. We will speak in January."
