James Rodriguez has been linked with a move to Manchester United for some times now, and in a new development, the Old Trafford club have made a £70million offer to Real Madrid for the player.
The talented playmaker is understood to have made the decision to move away from the La Liga to restart his career.
In the Champions League final against Juventus at Cardiff, the Columbia International did not make the bench – which could be an indication he is set to leave.
However, Manchester United are not the only Premier League club interested in the player, but the duo of Chelsea and Arsenal have also been strongly linked with him.
However, Jose Mourinho’s side are ready to beat off their rivals by lodging a significant offer for Rodriguez’s signature.
According to Mediaset Premium, the red devils have attempted to seal a move for Rodriguez by offering more than Real Madrid asking for.
It is understood that the Champions League winners ‘simply’ slapped a £66m price tag on the player’s head. Instead United tabled £70M – so we can expect the Spanish champions to be excited with the bid.
James Rodriguez managed to score 8 goals and helped with 6 assists in 22 games last season. (read here)
