Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez could be about to make a summer switch to Manchester United, with an article in The Express claiming that the Spanish giants are happy to sell the player at the end of the season.
This news has seen the United fans present in the Transfer Tavern crack open the bubbly, with the contingent jubilant at the prospect of the Colombian strutting his stuff in the Premier League.
United will need to pay £60 million to secure the services of the forward, who will be sacrificed by Madrid to make way for their own summer recruitment drive.
The 24-year-old has only played for Madrid 20 times this season and he has fallen way out down the pecking order at present, with the club now happy to part with a player who signed following the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
One United fan is waiting for the weekly darts tournament to start here in the Tavern and he thinks Rodriguez would be a remarkable signing for the club, stating that if it can be pulled off there is no reason why United can’t challenge for major titles next season.
Manchester United fans, what do you make to this news? Would you welcome Rodriguez to Old Trafford?
