van Nistelrooy Ruud not to join Blackburn?

Ruud van Nistelrooy is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to join Blackburn Rovers before the 1st of September this year.

The bookies have opened the betting on two potential big-name transfers with Brazilian teenager Neymar a 6/4 chance to join Chelsea within the same time frame.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “After failing to land Beckham and Ronaldinho Blackburn may end up with van Nistelrooy. The odds suggest Chelsea have a better chance of landing Neymar however.”
