We all know Ruud van Nistelrooy as a Premier League great, as one of the most clinical finishers ever to grace the English game. The prolific striker scored 150 times for Manchester United in 219 appearances for the club.

The 37-year old retired two years ago, but is lacing his boots up once more. He is embroiled in a transfer saga as he puts himself back in the market attempting to sign for a lucky Xbox player's FIFA 14 Ultimate Team.

Following retirement the Dutchman piled on the pounds, earning the nickname "food" van Nistelrooy after finding a new love outside the game: burgers and chips. He won his fight with flab, and here he takes on a new challenge.

Van the Man puts his finishing skills to the test, completing a series of tough FIFA 14 challenges that require the utmost composure and would be difficult in any conditions, let alone total darkness that he attempts here.

Ruud's agent is also seen in the video talking to potential clubs to sign the striker, but is heard in the video revealing his private contact details. This is a golden opportunity for FIFA 14 players to ring the agent and leave him a voicemail, to see if they can persuade him to enter negotiations and join their Ultimate Team - so listen carefully.

There are 42 FIFA Ultimate Team Legends in total who can be bought and sold on a virtual market, but EA Sports are offering the incredible prize of signing Ruud van Nistelrooy for their ultimate teams.

Players can enter the competition at playlikealegend.com.

Does the former Netherlands international buckle under the pressure, or do his striking instincts kick in?

See how he fares in the video above.
