Real Madrid star willing to join project, Man United favourites (not Bale)

The mega money Manchester United splashed out on Paul Pogba over the course of the summer has the punters in the Transfer Tavern excited about the next few months. 

While the Red Devils’ squad is far from the finished product, the United fans in the bar believe Jose Mourinho will spend even bigger money this time around.

So, comments from La Liga expert Guillem Balague on Sky Sports have excited our local United fans. He’s revealed he believes the Old Trafford giants are favourites to land Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez this summer.

The Colombian has largely been a peripheral figure in the Spanish capital over the last season or so, despite the huge money he cost Los Blancos in 2014.

With that in mind, Balague believes United are best-placed to land him, despite other interest. The 25-year-old is reportedly willing to join a club who are looking to build, rather than one certainties to win major honours right away.

As you can imagine, this news has gone down well amongst the Man United fans propping up the bar, who’d love to see him strutting his stuff at the Theatre of Dreams.
