After two losses on the bounce, the Manchester United fans parked in the Transfer Tavern need some cheering up.
Despite the word record-breaking deal for Paul Pogba, there’s only one thing that can lighten the mood amongst the Red Devils propping up the bar.
And that’s a transfer rumour.
Following reports from Spanish outlet Don Balon, the notion of welcoming another world superstar to Old Trafford has excited the United fans.
They suggest Jose Mourinho is keen on James Rodriguez, following his fall from grace in the Spanish capital.
Signed from Monaco for huge money back in 2014, the 25-year-old has been unable to muster much of a starting berth amid the vast array of attacking talent at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The report claims Mourinho has offered the playmaker a starring role at the Theatre of Dreams should he make the move to England.
Now big players in the transfer market, the idea of luring a player of his ilk has excited some of the locals.
Reports from the Sun yesterday suggested United would be willing to sell skipper Wayne Rooney, which could potentially open up a space for Rodriguez.
Is James good enough to cut it in the Premier League? Let us know below…
