According to new reports, Spanish giants Real Madrid will make attempt to persuade Manchester United star goalie David de Gea to the Madrid club this summer, and they intend getting this done by sending James Rodriguez to the Old Trafford club.
Rodriquez has previously stated that Manchester United is his preferred next destination and it appears he would soon be moving away from Madrid soon.
Due to his lack of playing time at the La Liga club under French boss Zinedine Zidane, many thought the past January transfer window would have seen him move away from the club. However, he was convinced to stay at Madrid by the French coach.
But his situation at the club haven’t improved or get much better, and this season so far, he has made just 16 La Liga appearances for his Spanish club.
However, it is now reported that Real Madrid are willing to offload the Colombian star in exchange for the Man United shotstopper.
Obviously, many Manchester United fans won’t want De Gea to leave the club yet. The Spanish goalie has helped the club on numerous occasions.
Nevertheless, there are other goalkeepers who are as good as De Gea, or even better than he is – and United can always splash the cash to buy any. So, perhaps exchanging him with a quality player like Rodriguez might not be a bad idea.
