Manchester United fans gathering in the Transfer Tavern are praying for better fortune in the new year, whilst they try their luck on the slot machines, and whilst they didn’t enjoy any fortune there, they celebrated loudly when they heard about this report.
Fichajes states that Louis Van Gaal desperately wants to bring James Rodriguez to the Premier League from Real Madrid, saving him from his Spanish nightmare.
The Colombian World Cup star enjoyed a decent first year at the Santiago Bernabeu but has fallen out of favour this term, which has led to speculation that the 24-year-old could leave the Spanish giants.
Van Gaal plans to make Rodriguez the cornerstone of his new-look United side, who still need improvements despite the Dutchman spending over £250m during his tenure at Old Trafford.
Whether Rodriguez, who many believe has the capability to be a future Ballon D’Or winner, will leave Madrid remain to be seen but he certainly won’t be a cheap addition.
Finance isn’t an issue for Manchester United, who seek a world superstar to reignite the passion in the fans and push the Red Devils towards success.
United fans, should you go all out for James Rodriguez? Let us know in the comments below!
