Manchester United have been given a possible transfer boost as Colombian playmaker, James rodriguez looks to be surplus to requirements at Real Madrid, with Manchester United among those that struggled for his signature after is stellar World Cup outing with Colombia in 2014 but the midfielder opted to join the Los Blancos. The 24-year-old eventually joined Real Madrid for £60m in the summer of 2014.
Rodriguez has struggled to make it to new coach Zinedine Zidane’s squad of late and that has resulted in a dip in his performances, the 24-year-old has featured in just 24 games for the Spanish giants in all competitions this season, hitting the back of the net 9 times.
With his current position at the Bernabeu, reports are claiming that Manchester united are considering a summer move for the Colombia with the Red Devils looking to strengthen their attack in the summer, the Colombian would definitely bring the flair needed in the United’s midfield. His compatriot, Carlos Valderama has hit out at the real madrid boss over his treatment of Rodriguez amidst uncertainty about the playmakers future.
“Even if he scores three, four of five goals, Zidane won’t put him on, James is a player he does not like. Carlo Ancelotti put him on and he played well, and then later with benitez, but not with Zidane. So we do not understand what is happening with him.” Valderama said.
With Cristiano Ronaldo side-lined and Benzema crocked at half time James was still left on the bench in a crucial Champions League game at the Etihad Stadium. It goes to show Zidane’s lack of trust for the playmaker, this might be the Red Devil’s time to strike a deal for the player.
