Can I return a van if there is fluid around the injectors?

I bought a Volkswagen Caddy today and the van runs fine. It has 75000 miles but it has a small amount of fluid around each of the injectors. Is this normal on a 1.6 TDI and can I return it to a private car dealer after purchasing it?

This reads like a leaking injector. It may be a problem within the seal or the pipe and will probably be a garage job. Someone will need to clean the fluid from the engine and then identify the cause of the leak.
