Manchester United have been linked with Real Madrid star James Rodriguez for a long time now and the latest reports going on in the media have been interesting.
Earlier this month, we covered a report (via Diario Gol) claiming that the Colombian international only wants to leave the Los Blancos to join the Red Devils this summer.
Few days back, Independent claimed that the Old Trafford club have stepped up discussions to sign the former Monaco playmaker.
Now, as per an exclusive report covered by Express, Mourinho is ready to beat Chelsea and sign James Rodriguez for Manchester United.
Last season, the versatile attackler could not start on regular basis for Real Madrid under the leadership of Zinedine Zidane and a move way from the Bernabeu should be fruitful for him.
The South American star is mainly a central attacking midfielder but he can effectively play on either flank and also in the central midfield if needed. In the last campaign, he scored 11 goals and provided 13 assists in all competitions for the Los Blancos.
As per the provided Express link, PSG and Chelsea are eager to sign James as well but he prefers to join Mourinho at Old Trafford.
