Manchester United still hoping to beat Chelsea to world class La Liga ace

Manchester United are interested in offering James Rodriguez an escape route from his Real Madrid nightmare.

The Colombian has been out of favour with Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane and started just 18 games at the Bernabeu last season.

The Colombian has consistently spoken out about his frustration at not starting games in the Spanish capital and looks to be fed up with the situation.

Real Madrid’s President Florentino Perez likes the Colombian and wants him to stay. However, with the emergence of Real Betis’ Dani Ceballos and AS Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe the Champions League holders are willing to let Rodriguez go.

Rodriguez was linked to Bayern Munich early in the transfer window, but his wage demands made the Germans forget their interest in his signature.

Chelsea remains interested, and the Blues are keener now that they have lost Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho wants Rodriguez to add more quality and unpredictability to his attack as he bids to win the Premier League and Champions League this season.
