Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that James Rodriguez will be welcomed at Manchester United by Jose Mourinho if the Spanish giants decide to sell him. There have been rumours about James wanting to leave Real and with Zidane and Perez being fine with it for quite sometime now. One reason for it being,Gareth Bale’s preference of playing through the center as the number 10 which leaves Zidane no other option but to play Rodriguez on the wings, where he isn’t very effective. The Columbian was Perez’s star signing after the world cup but after two seasons where he has been decent for the Spanish side it looks like his time might be over at the Bernabeu. One other reason, this deal could be completed is the super agent Jorge Mendes who represents both Mourinho and Rodriguez and also shares a very good working relationship with Real Madrid.
Of course,when any good player is available in the market all the big clubs are interested and it is the same with James. Both Arsenal and Chelsea are rumoured to be monitoring Rodriguez’s situation and United will face a battle to sign the Columbian.
There have been many reports in the media that United and Mourinho have already signed a pre-contract agreement and Mourinho has started preparing for his job at Old Trafford. Mourinho’s pre-contract entails him a huge amount of money if United fail to appoint him before May 1 and even bigger amount if United don’t sign him before June 1.
