Blogger makes a suggestion that may or may not make him target of much abuse!
OK, hear me out regarding this crazy idea before you bash it into submission. Whilst, we’d all love for Rafa to go out and get a David Villa-esque player this summer to act as cover (or play upfront) with Torres next season, I think we’re all in agreement that the sheer cost of signing such a player without having to sell for the extra funds makes such a move very difficult.
We all know that Rafa has been given transfer funds for the summer; we just don’t know exactly how much he’s been given. With that in mind, I’ve got a short-term option that could reap rewards for a relatively low cost.
With Real Madrid currently buying every big name on the market, they’ve come to that point in the summer where they need to sell to recoup some of the roughly £150m they spent on Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.
One of the first names on the chopping block is former United striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy. At the age of 33, the Madrid striker is certainly on the back-end of his career. But if the rumored £1.25million cut-price is legitimate, then I see no reason why Rafa shouldn’t join Tottenham in the race for his services. (Anfield Red)

Would such a move be a bridge too far? He still has a year or two in him and has a proven track record in the Premier League.
