With Manchester United needing to make a big splash, rumors are circulating that James Rodriguez, unhappy at Real Madrid, is interested in a move to Old Trafford.
This is a complicated situation to read. Rodriguez certainly has talent and Manchester United clearly have a need to upgrade their attacking talent and the money to do so. That's where things fall apart a little. We're not exactly sure who will be managing United next season and how James might fit. There is also the concern that he has been linked to a lifestyle that isn't exactly focused entirely on football. With Memphis Depay already under scrutiny for his off-pitch activities, would United want to bring in another expensive player long on talent and short on commitment. There's also the issue that he's never been confused with being either an athletic or diligent defender which probably means he's a no-go if Mourinho arrives. File this one under "fun to think about but unlikely". May 18 - 12:13 PM
