Man United are ‘clear favourites’ to sign a Real Madrid star

Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Gulliem Ballague has been fielding questions from football fans on Monday, and one of the issues which was brought up was the future of James Rodriguez at Real Madrid.

 James’ names has been a constant feature in the gossip columns as he’s struggled to lock down a first team place in the Los Blancos XI.

Despite that, the 25-year-old has still been involved in 29 games for club and country this season, scoring 11 goals and contributing eight assists.

The Colombian is still a top quality player, and according to Balague Man United are ‘clear favourites’ to sign him.

His agent is Jorge Mendes who is very close to Jose Mourinho.

He is the kind of player who instead of going to a club that is guaranteed to win the title next season, would be willing to help a team on the up, and Manchester United with the investment coming in the summer should be contenders for everything.

Balague claimed that James could cost €60 million.
