James Rodriguez wants to agree a move to Manchester United

Spanish source covered a story which was focused on the Colombian playmaker. It is mentioned that James Rodriguez has already given the nod to join Manchester United in an exchange deal that would see Pogba moving to the Bernabeu.

As per El Desmarque, in the last meeting, Madrid would offered €100million for the 28-year-old Paul Pogba but it seems that the Red Devils would want €125million and the South American star to let their record signing leave.

El Desmarque also reported that the Los Blancos are prepared to offer Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez to Manchester United in order to lure French international Paul Pogba in January.

The Spanish outlet further stated that super agent Jorge Mendes wanted his client to join Wolves but the player himself wants to agree a move to Manchester United.

James Rodriguez was a superstar at Porto, who impressed with Monaco as well and excelled in his first two seasons with Real Madrid but since the appointment of Zidane in the 2015-16 campaign, the South American has mainly warmed the bench.

He spent the last two seasons on loan with Bayern Munich. In the last campaign, the attacker was mostly on the treatment table and only started 13 league games for the German giants.

This season, he has so far started just 4 league games for Madrid under Zidane and at the moment, he is out injured. As far as his international career is concerned, so far, the Colombian has netted 22 goals in 76 appearances for his nation.

He won the Golden shoe for being the top scorer (6 goals) in the 2014 World Cup.

Manchester United do lack depth in their attack and they do not have a quality Center Attacker Mid-Field in the squad. In such a scenario, a proven player like James Rodriguez, who can effectively play anywhere in the attack, would be a quality addition.

His current contract with the 13-time European Champions will expire in 2021 and as per a report covered by Italian source La Repubblica last month, Florentino Perez values the playmaker at €50million euros (£42million).
