It can’t have been easy being a Manchester United fans over the last few years, judging by the faces of the punters propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern.
Still, if there’s one thing guaranteed to cheer up the Red Devils around the bar, it’s a big transfer rumour in regards to a potentially big arrival at Old Trafford.
So, reports emanating out of Spain have gone down a storm this evening. According to Madrid-Barcelona, Jose Mourinho has promised Real Madrid star James Rodriguez he will be paid a net of €10m per season should he move to Old Trafford this summer.
The Colombian has been strongly linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams in recent weeks and is thought to have been told by the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ he will have a big role to play for the club.
He’s dropped out of the starting lineup in the Spanish capital pretty much since last season, though our resident Red Devils would love to see him arrive on these shores to help them try and restore former glories.
