Real Madrid agrees huge Manchester United transfer But It is Two Sided.

According to the reports, Real Madrid have decided to Sell James Rodriguez to Manchester United.



James has only started 10 La Liga matches this season for Madrid, having started just 17 times in the competition in 2015-16, means he is likely to end the campaign further away from the starting 11 than he was a year ago.

It would appear that James must leave the Bernabeu in order to find the consistent first-team football. Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema are all above him in the pecking order despite the 25-year-old’s excellent goals and assists record. He has scored more goals per 90 minutes than Benzema or Bale and has recorded more assists per 90 minutes than any other player in the squad.

United have struggled creatively this season, and so fans will no doubt welcome these latest developments. Manchester United have scored 50 league goals in 2016/17- just one more than Bournemouth and four more than struggling Crystal Palace.



Incoming of James at Old Trafford would surely help Mourinho’s rebuilding project, although, with so many clubs reportedly interested in his signature, it won’t be easy to get his signature. Mourinho’s relationship with Super Agent Mendes may prove beneficial for United in acquiring services of James Rodriguez.

It was reported at the weekend that Rodriguez had picked his number at Manchester United ahead of a summer move to Old Trafford.

President Florentino Perez has reportedly shown green light to allow Rodriguez to leave the Bernabeu.But the report says that David De Gea will be heading in the opposite direction in a swap deal.



The exact transfer fee is yet to be decided but Madrid value James at £50million while United value the attacking midfielder at closer to £33m. De Gea has been heavily linked with a £66m return to the Real Madrid after moving from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

The Spain International was very close to joining Real In 2015 transfer window but the move did not happen because paperwork could not be submitted in time before the transfer window was shut.
