Man United look to fix defence with capture of £20m star

RodriguezManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are angrily downing their pints this Monday morning and demanding further changes to their lacklustre squad, which fell to a home defeat against Southampton over the weekend.

Fortunately for them, it seems their club has a trick or two up their sleeve as The Sun report United want Wolfsburg full-back Ricardo Rodriguez to solve their defensive mishaps.

The Red Devils have watched Rodriguez twice in recent weeks and are hoping to seal a deal for around the £20m mark, although it will take £27m for the defender’s release-clause with the German side to be activated.

Wolfsburg, however, will be keen to keep hold of the crucial player as they have a great chance of reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League after being handed a tie in the first knock-out round against Gent.

United’s interest has been increased significantly by a wealth of injury problems inflicted on their defensive ranks, which has led our landlord to state United should just activate the player’s release clause and stop messing about.

United fans, can Rodriguez be the catalyst towards a top-four finish? Let us know in the comments below!
