La Liga

Manchester United target flies out to Italy to discuss summer move from Real Madrid

JamesRodriguezIt looks set to be yet another disappointing domestic campaign for Real Madrid, with their hopes of winning the La Liga title hanging by a thread.

A win for Barcelona at the weekend will ensure it is four years since the Spanish giants claimed the league title and will inevitably crack up the pressure on boss Zinedine Zidane.

The Frenchman is set to have a complete overhaul of his squad this summer and several names are being brandished around for summer departures.

Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern has spotted an article in Spanish newspaper OK Diario that claims James Rodriguez has flown out to Turin to discuss a summer move to Italian champions Juventus.

The Colombian international has only played 23 times this season and believes his ability warrants a longer run in the side, which could force him to move on during the summer months.

The news could alert the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal who were keen to sign the player before his move to Spain, following the 2014 World Cup.

Manchester United fans, would you still welcome a move for James Rodriguez? What would he do for the club? How do you think he would get on in Italy?
