Manchester United are in advanced talks to sign Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez, according to reports.
He’s endured a frustrating season at the Bernabeu and the fact that he was not included in the Champions League final squad seems like the nail in the coffin.
Rodriguez has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford after he fell out of favour Zinedine Zidane and French radio station RMC stated his representatives are in concrete talks with Man United over a summer move.
Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing the midfielder as a summer exit would believe to cost around £61million.
European football journalist Gabriele Marcotti claimed his huge wages could prove to be a stumbling block in any transfer, but Man United have the funds in place to make a deal go through, especially after pulling out of a deal for Antione Griezmann as the Frenchman decided to stay at Atletico Madrid.
Rodriguez has proven to be an incredible talent and all he needs is a run of games to help bring back his confidence, a summer move is increasingly likely and there’s no doubt Mourinho will be looking to bring him to Old Trafford.
