Man United “clear favourite” in the 3 club battle for €60m attacker

The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see some new exciting attacking talent this summer but they know that they must achieve a Champions League spot to get the very best.

There are two ways they can do that: fourth place is still a possibility and they have one foot in the final of the Europa League after a 1-0 win away at Celta Vigo.

If the Red Devils can see off the challenge of Celta Vigo at Old Trafford next week, they will play in the Europa League final against Ajax or Lyon to compete for a space in next year’s Champions League.

A number of highly rated attackers have been linked in recent weeks but Manchester United have jumped to the front of the queue in the race for a Real Madrid winger, according to a reliable journalist.

Guillem Balague has revealed on Twitter that Manchester United are the “clear favourite” to land James Rodriguez this summer.

The Colombian international winger is ready to leave Real Madrid to get first team action elsewhere and Jose Mourinho is eyeing a move.

The 25-year-old can play on either flank or through the middle and Manchester United lead Chelsea and Juventus in the race to sign the €60m-rated star.

Man Utd fans – Rodriguez for €60m: yes or no? Let us know below…
