Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez has decided his next club. While there are a host of European heavyweights willing to make James their new signing, the Colombian has decided to make the move to Old Trafford this summer.
James has had a very frustrating time in the Spanish capital over the last three years. He has seen his playing time steadily decrease, with his nadir being last season’s Champions League final when he did not even make the match day squad.
Rodriguez averaged only 55 minutes of playing time last season, as he struggled with both form and confidence. James, who was the star of the FIFA World Cup 2014, was bought by Real for a whopping 80 Million Euros.

Rodriguez was close to leaving last summer, but decided to fight it out one more time. But with the World Cup being just a year away, James realizes that he needs to play more regularly if wants to play a leading role for his country next year in Russia.
James is unhappy with the way Real Madrid has been handling his future. In fact, he is fed up with life at Madrid and has told the club that he ‘wants to leave in 48 hours’.
James now wants to go to either Chelsea or Liverpool. Manchester United are still in the fray but United are too busy completing the Lukaku transfer.
Jurgen Klopp’s side is not ready to pay the 75 million euro transfer price. James is unhappy because Real’s refusal to admit that he is on sale has only driven up his price.
The Colombian’s agent Jorge Mendes will be looking to give his star a good deal, which is why he is still trying to get the big clubs in Europe to buy James.
Clearly there is a lot more to this transfer!
