Manchester United again linked with January move for sublime ‘El Diez’


What a player

What a deal this would be for Manchester United.

One of the stars of The World Cup in 2014 was undoubtedly Colombia’s James Rodriguez who scored sublime gaols and generally announced himself to the football planet with a bang.

He soon moved to Real Madrid for around £60m and quickly found alliances with the other A-listers in the side.

But he hasn’t found the going as easy under the tutelage of the pragmatic new Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez and rumours persist that Manchester United may take advantage as early as January.

And Sky Sports picks up the story today by stating that:

The Old Trafford club are also being linked with a move for Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

If Manchester United are a little dull on the eye these days they could hardly do better than to sign a player of true imagination such as Rodriguez.

He regularly pulls off moves that look impossible and has the football brain to go with his wonderful feet.


His nickname ‘El Diez‘ means ‘number 10’ and that is where he may feel most comfortable. But he has also played well for Real Madrid out wide and he would offer a sparkling yet adaptable addition for Manchester United this winter.

Rodriguez has scored 3 goals in 11 games for Los Blancos this season but has regularly been overlooked for more defensive players.

He would be a sensational addition for Manchester United but such a big deal would be fraught with difficulty at this time of the year.

Let’s take a look at the wizard in a action.

Manchester United fans: perfect addition?
