Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has signed a one-year contract extension that keeps him at the club until 2010.
“I am delighted to be staying here for two more years. It’s an honour for me to be a part of the history of Real Madrid,” Van Nistelrooy told the club’s Web.
The Dutch international joined Real from Manchester United in 2006 and scored 25 league goals in his first season to lead the side to their first Primera Liga title in four years.
The 31-year-old has been instrumental in Real’s impressive start to this season, scoring 9 league goals as the club entered 2008 with a seven point lead at the top of the table.
