Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are collecting dust as they await official news of Jose Mourinho’s appointment at the club, which has been rumoured since mid-December, but there’s transfer news to keep them occupied.
Spanish outlet Don Balon state Jose Mourinho has promised Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez a spot in his Manchester United squad, identifying the 2014 World Cup star as a major target for the summer.
The Red Devils have a wealth of cash available to improve their squad and money will be spent this summer, as the club aim to achieve what they haven’t been able to since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement and become a dominant force in England once again.
With Real Madrid also struggling in the past two years, since their 2014 La Decima win in Europe, the Spanish giants are preparing for their own squad overhaul- and it’s likely James Rodriguez will be one of the big names axed.
Having cost Los Blancos £63m after the World Cup in Brazil, Real will look to recoup as much of that figure as they possibly can.
