Tottenham target van Nistelrooy intends on fighting for Real Madrid spot

Former Manchester United striker Rudd van Nistelrooy says he intends on fighting for his spot at Real Madrid despite interest from Tottenham.

The Dutchman believes he can still cement a place in the first team despite off-season moves for Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Villa despite battling a knee injury.

"I'm injured so I do not know what they want of me," Van Nistelrooy told NIS.

"I am happy at Real and want to go back and get the opportunity to prove myself.

"I have a strong motivation to succeed at Real. I believe I have plenty to offer Real."
