Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney are set to be offloaded by Manchester United to bring in Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to bolster his squad during the summer but the United duo of veteran Carrick and club captain Rooney are not in his future plans.

Reports suggest that Carrick is apparently building a house in his native north east as he prepares to leave the Theatre of Dreams.



This could mean that the 35 year old is triggering an option to join his hometown club of Newcastle and work under Rafa Benitez.

Wayne Rooney’s lacklustre season could end with an axe as Jose Mourinho is eager to find his alternative during the summer.Reports also claim that Rooney could either reunite with his former club Everton or fly off to China for big money wages.



James Rodriguez is the latest player to be linked with the club as his chances of playing in the first team is limited at the Bernabeu.
