For the 2006-07 season, Ruud van Nistelrooy swapped Old Trafford for the Bernabéu, joining Real Madrid. The Dutch marksman scored a hat-trick in only his second league game, as his goal scoring exploits led to Los Blancos winning the league title on the final day.

After a fantastic first season in 2001-02, winning the PFA Player’s Player of the Year award, Ruud van Nistelrooy continued to improve in 2002-03.

Finishing as the league’s top goal scorer, the Dutchman struck 13 goals in the final 8 games of the season to overcome an 8-point deficit and win the title for Manchester United. Van Nistelrooy’s supreme confidence and deadliness in front of goal for the Manchester club gives him the status as one of the Premier League’s all-time greatest goalscorers.
