£61m deal on, Man United close to sealing deal for FIFA Puskás Award winner
While Real Madrid are busy celebrating their triumph and conquest of the Champions League trophy, Colombian international and Los Blancos attacking midfielder James Rodriguez is resigned to leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.
Reports have indicated that Man United are currently in talks with the representatives of Rodriguez in a bid to secure an Old Trafford move for the star player.
The Colombian international shone in the 2014 World Cup where he ended as the golden boot winner and he drew attraction from all quarters of football. However, Madrid signed him and he slotted into the first team of Los Blancos.
The beginning of the end of his career for Madrid started last term when Zinedine Zidane took charge of the helms of Madrid’s affairs. Isco is favored ahead of the left-footer and Rodriguez did not even make the team that won the Champions League.
The 25-year-old has made bare his mind on his desire to further his career away from Madrid and Jose Mourinho has made him a priority signing. The report claims that United have advanced talks to sign the player but they are not only in his chase. PSG and Inter Milan are also interested.
Real Madrid have tagged the star player at £61m which is fine given the inflated nature of the transfer window. United payed £86million for Pogba, so it will not be difficult to fork out the price for the player.
United’s season was blighted with injuries to key players and if we sign Rodriguez, he will provide a very potent option in the attack for Mourinho.
