Top Sources State Manchester United Are Not In Pursuit Of James Rodriguez

It has become the transfer story of a window that hasn’t even begun yet, and of course Manchester United are in the eye of the storm.

The Red Devils’ poor season, given their massive outlay last summer including no less than £89m on Paul Pogba, has naturally led to widespread belief of further nine-figure investments to come.

Such fast and furious transfer activity on behalf of Jose Mourinho would come as no surprise, with the heavily linked figure of Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez being a willing accomplice, given his woes at the Bernabeu. The move yesterday looked inevitable, with Sky Sports declaring that the opportunity was wide open.

However, two top sources located in England have poured scorn on the reports.

James Ducker of The Telegraph, who focuses on both of the Manchester clubs, blames the speculation on Madrid trying to create interest in the Colombian, which would corroborate the belief that his future nonetheless lies elsewhere.

On the other end of the deal, Simon Stone of the highly credible BBC Sport suggests that far from being Manchester United’s top priority, the 25-year-old isn’t even on their radar as of yet.

Newly crowned Premier League champions Chelsea have also been inextricably linked with the forward, who has failed to nail down a place under manager Zinedine Zidane.
