Man Utd have reportedly made their move for La Liga midfield catalyst, Chelsea interest is also ‘expected’

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a few new signings this summer…

They may well get their wish, too, with Diario Madridista reporting that the Manchester giants have made a move for Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez. According to Diario Madridista, the Red Devils are one of two clubs – the other being their local rivals Man City – to have made a move for the Columbian midfielder who is set to leave at the end of the season. Significantly, it is said that Chelsea are ‘expected’ to be interested in the midfielder at the end of the campaign.

With the summer transfer window still some way off, the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased that Jose Mourinho is already moving to secure a few of his targets.

Though Rodriguez may be a hard player to sign, given the fact that several clubs are keen, Man Utd have done well to get a bid in early – whilst there is also no doubting just how influential Rodriguez would be in a red shirt. Significantly, with clubs like Chelsea yet to formally submit their interest, this could be key.

A dynamic midfield catalyst, his playmaking skills are exactly what Marcus Rashford could need to take his game to the next level – with the Columbian arguably one of the finest ‘number 10’ players in world football.

With the likes of Anthony Martial, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba already in Jose Mourinho’s arsenal – our landlord thinks that Man Utd might be unstoppable should they capture Rodriguez.
