Zinedine Zidane rejected all suggestions that James Rodriguez is absent at training for transfer to Manchester United.
There was news earlier that MU have been offered to buy attacking midfielder, who will leave Real Madrid in the summer. And Rodriguez didn’t present in Tuesday’s training session before the La Liga game with Celta Vigo.
“He is with us and there nothing to discuss. He didn’t train because of the foot injury. Now we are thinking about three coming up matches and that’s all. Today we don’t feel like champions. We have not won anything. So we are not going to relax for soon”, replyed Zidane in the press conference.
The 25-year-old Rodriguez signed to Madrid for £60million in 2014. A few days earlier was a rumor that his agent Jorge Mendes had already agreed the terms with Manchester United. Furthermore, there is an item in Rodriguez’s Adidas contract, that he had to wear a shirt with No 10. So if Columbian will move to MU, Wayne Rooney (currently No 10) leaves the team this summer.
James Rodríguez’s end product is something special. That is what Manchester United need more of. Seems to be a smart buy if around €50m.
