The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Jose Mourinho to sign a big name star this summer, and whilst the Portuguese manager is seemingly keen to do the same, it would appear as though one major barrier stands in their way…
According to Don Balon, Man Utd are keen on Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez – and have even made a move to offer the Columbian what he wants. However, standing in the way of Jose Mourinho is his old club – with Real Madrid reportedly demanding a fee far beyond what Man Utd are ready to pay at present, whilst they are also keen to see David De Gea move the other way.
Certainly, whilst the Man Utd fans in the pub are keen to see Rodriguez join the club, they definitely don’t want De Gea going the other way. De Gea is, of course, one of Europe’s best – and the Red Devils can’t really afford to lose him.
Rodriguez, though, would certainly be a good signing, He would add an extra edge of creativity to a side that has been somewhat void of that spark so far this season – leaving Man Utd in a tough spot this summer.
