Manchester United preparing 75-million bid for Real Madrid star


Manchester United are determined to sign Real Madrid star James Rodriguez next summer. The Red Devils are ready to launch a 75-million-euro bid to bring the Colombian to England, according to British newspaper Daily Express.

The 24-year-old is reportedly seeking to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, as the manager doesn’t seem to trust him and the fans keep criticizing him. United are willing to take advantage of this situation, but they know Florentino Perez will try to recover the investment he made.

Perez is reportedly requesting 80 million euros to let the Colombian go, but he would surely agree to sell for 75 million.

The Daily Express has claimed that Jose Mourinho, who is set to become the new Manchester United manager, has requested James Rodriguez’s transfer. According to the latest Real Madrid transfer news, the former Los Merengues manager also wants to bring Raphael Varane to Old Trafford.

James Rodriguez has spent more time on the bench than on the field this season, and United have promised him he will be a guaranteed starter. A group of fans jeered at him after last Tuesday’s victory against Wolfsburg as he was leaving the Santiago Bernabeu with his wife. Moving to Manchester seems like the wisest choice for him right now.
