James Rodriguez has a pre-agreement with Manchester United

Real Madrid winger James Rodriguez has been linked with a transfer away from Bernabeu for the last 12 months.

RCN radio are reporting that the player and his agent met with Florentino Perez this week regarding Rodriguez’s lack of playing time under Zinedine Zidane

The 25-year-old Rodriguez has started only 12 games in La Liga this season has managed to rack up eight goals and six assists in 20 appearances.

According to the report on RCN radio, Perez assured the player that both parties will sit down at the end of this season and make a decision.

During the meeting, the Real Madrid president was informed that Rodriguez already has a pre-agreement to join Manchester United this summer which I am sure was not met with approval by Perez as it removes Real’s ability to get multiple clubs in a bidding war for the Colombian international, thus driving up his price.

With Real Madrid strongly linked with another move for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea this summer, could the two players be involved in a swap?

But before that can happen, Mourinho will have to get rid of Wayne Rooney or convince the English forward to change his shirt number. Apparently, James Rodriguez has an agreement with Adidas which states that he must wear the number 10 shirt.

Rooney is thought to be a target for Chinese clubs this summer.
