Manchester United could be about to complete one of the biggest transfers of the summer window – before it even opens. ESPN say that James Rodriguez favours a move to Old Trafford, if he departs from Real Madrid this coming summer.
The 24-year old Columbian has found himself out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu since his £80million move from AS Monacao a couple of years ago.
Injuries certainly have hampered his development, and the form of the other midfielders in the side like Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Isco have meant limited minutes on the field.
Due to a tactical shift by Zinedine Zidane, Rodriguez no longer fits the system out in Spain, and could well leave this summer.
One thing is for certain – Manchester United will have to pay through the roof if they are to land James Rodriguez this summer, but he could well form a real force with the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
