Manchester United signed four top stars last summer to strengthen their team for the last campaign. This summer, the Red Devils have so far signed only one player in the form of Victor Lindelof.
As far as the attacking midfield is concerned, Real Madrid star James Rodriguez has been linked with Man Utd for a long time and it seems that his stance has not changed.
According to Diario Gol, the Colombian international is only willing to join Manchester United this summer or else he will stay at the club. The issue is that the British giants are not prepared to meet his asking price which should be a figure close to 80 million euros.
The Spanish source claim that Zidane wants James to be sold but club president Florentino Perez is not prepared to let him leave for cheap.
The report further suggests that if the transfer saga drags on for far too long, Perez may opt to sell Rodriguez for a cut price or Zidane may have to deal with the problem of having him around for another campaign. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds.
A week ago, Diario Gol claimed that the South American playmaker has said yes to joining Man United and has already agreed everything with the Old Trafford club. Back in May, even Don Balon claimed that United agreed terms to sign James.
The 25-year-old playmaker is naturally a central attacking midfielder but he can effectively be deployed in any attacking position. His current deal with the European Champions will expire in 2020 and he earns £185,000-a-week (Star).
The former Monaco attacker scored 11 goals and provided 13 assists in 33 appearances for the Los Blancos in the last campaign. In your opinion, should United splash the cash to hire his services?
