Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are distracting themselves from tomorrow’s huge Manchester derby by discussing the latest transfer rumours with our bar staff.
A host of big names have been linked with a summer transfer to Old Trafford and the Red Devils have been handed a huge boost by reports on the continent, as Spanish outlet Don Balon reports Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez has decided to join Jose Mourinho’s side.
The 2014 World Cup superstar has struggled to make a lasting impact since moving to the Spanish capital in the wake of his wondrous performances in Brazil with Colombia, with first-team football opportunities severely limited.
Zinedine Zidane has handed James just 17 La Liga appearances this season and the 25-year-old is now set to leave the Spanish side this summer, with a move to Manchester United now potentially set to go ahead in what would be a huge coup for Mourinho’s men.
A host of Premier League side’s have been linked with the attacking midfielder’s signature but our landlord believes United were the only club he’d ever join in England, as he states other sides would struggle to find the finances required.
Would James Rodriguez be a good signing for Manchester United? Let us know in the comments below!
