James Rodriguez is a name that is generating a lot of interest amongst the fans in the Transfer Tavern at present…
The Columbian is undoubtedly one of the best players currently playing in Europe, and his reduced playing time over the last year or so has left some fans in the pub dreaming of their side signing him.
However, this morning it is the Man Utd and Arsenal fans in the pub that have a smile on their faces, with Spanish publication Marca reporting that the Premier League giants are the two sides in the race for his signature. It is noted that his future is very uncertain, and he could well leave this summer, giving the fans in the Transfer Tavern hope that he could move to the Premier League.
Clearly, there is a lot of reason for both sides to sign him, not least because of his quality on the pitch. A technical magician, he is able to find a pass out of nowhere whilst he is also able to dribble past opponents with ease. He bagged 11 goals in all competitions last season, which is impressive given his relative lack of game time.
From Arsenal’s point of view, his signing certainly makes sense. It would allow Wenger to take the pressure off of both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, whilst the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern would love to see Rodriguez link up with Marcus Rashford boing forward.
Whatever happens, our landlord thinks that the James Rodrigues saga could well be the tale of the summer.
