According to reports, James Rodriguez has been linked with a move to Manchester United. Manchester United’s qualification to the Champions League has given them the confidence of making new bids to sign top players.

United are currently in search of a Bruno Fernandez back up as they do not expect him to be involved in every game. The Portuguese international has been of impact since he arrived at Old Trafford. His confidence and creativity have transformed the Manchester United team.

James Rodriguez is a potential signing for Manchester United. Reports indicate that United have been in contact with him. The Red devils consider Rodriguez a back up option for Fernandez.

Under Carlo Ancelotti in Real Madrid, Rodriguez performed well in his first season. Zidane’s arrival at Madrid saw him signed out on loan to Bayern Munich where he was at his best form. Despite his best performance in Germany, Bayern did not sign him permanently. He was on loan at Bayern for two years since 2017.

From reports, it will cost Manchester United around 25 million euros to sign Rodriguez. The Colombian international can play as a winger as well as an attacking midfielder.
