Man Utd Target James Rodriguez Given Standing Ovation In What Could Be His Real Madrid Farewell

Published on:

Manchester United transfer target James Rodriguez might have played his last match at the Bernabeu for Real Madrid.

Rodgriguez was taken off in the 60th minute and he received a standing ovation during their 4-1 win over Sevilla which saw Zidane’s side closing in on the La Liga title.

And as the Colombian left the pitch, he shared a touching moment with the fans as Real Madrid played their last home game of the season.

Rodriguez has found life unhappy under Zidane and has been highly linked with a move away to Manchester United in the summer due to lack of game-time.

And after seeing the scenes on Sunday night, it is believed that Rodriguez has already made up his mind and is making preparations to test new waters outside Madrid.

And FootTheBall sources reveal that the former Porto star already has a pre-contract agreement with United.

But sources also revealed that his move to Old Trafford will depend on whether club legend Wayne Rooney leaves Man Utd in the summer.

According to reports, Rodriguez will be roped in as direct replacement for Rooney and will also don his United shirt.

Real Madird president Florentino Perez will take the final call whether he would offload the Colombian, whom he had made the third-most expensive player in history when he had splurged £63million to secure his signatures in 2014.
