Real Madrid in Van Nistelrooy contract talks

The Dutchman's current deal expires in June and he could commit to a new club in January if Real fail to tie him down.

Marca says Real directors don't want a repeat of the David Beckham fiasco after the England midfielder signed for LA Galaxy as they dithered over offering him new terms.

Real are in talks with Van Nistelrooy about a new 12-month contract extension.
