Not Morata! £70m-rated highly coveted attacker agrees terms with Man United
The countdown to the official opening of this year’s summer transfer window has begun, we can only expects transfer rumors and gossips to circulate the media wave with reckless abandon.
Man United completed the signing of Swedish tough-tackler Victor Lindolf from Benfica but Jose Mourinho is yet unrelenting as he seek to bring back the glory days for the Red Devils.
According to reports making the rounds in the Spanish and English media, Manchester United have agreed a deal in principle to sign Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez.
The Colombian international failed to make the bench of Los Blancos team that thumped the Old Lady in the Champions League final. He has played from the bench more often than not this season and is said to be in the want of a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Despite being a fringe player at for Madrid, Rodriguez is reportedly being chase by Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United and Paris Saint Germain. The Blues failed to meet the player’s £70m valuation while Arsenal are yet to make an offer for him even though they have won him their jersey.
However, Spanish media Diario Madrista claims United are front runners for Rodriguez’s signature after both parties verbally agreed a deal for the player to lace his boots for the Red Devils.
Man United success for last season was built on a rock solid defense, the team lacked creativity in the final third of their opponent, and that is what Rodriguez would offer United. He has the ability to dissect defenses with his inch-perfect final passes.
With Wayne Rooney’s decline glaring, and the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, James Rodriguez will be a fantastic buy for Mourinho as he continues to rebuild Man United team.
