MADRID, July 27 (Reuters) - Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy will join Real Madrid from Manchester United on a three-year contract, the Primera Liga club said on Thursday. The deal is reported by Spanish media to be worth around 15 million euros ($19.12 million). 'Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Manchester United for the signing of Ruud van Nistelrooy,' the Spanish club said in a statement. 'The player will take a medical on Friday morning and will be presented in the afternoon at 1700 GMT in the Bernabeu.' The 30-year-old scored 150 goals for United since joining in 2001 for a then British record fee of £19 million ($35.39 million).
