Colombian international James Rodriguez is reported pushing to attain new dual citizenship paperwork in order to help complete a move to join Manchester United, according to reports from The Express.
The 25-year-old attacker is looking to move away from the Bernabeu Stadium this summer, after been unable to break in to Zinedine Zidane’s first team plans, despite having scored 32 goals in 105 appearances for the Spanish outfit.
Lot of clubs have shown an interest in landing the ace but have all been put off by Real’s asking price, rumour was that Arsenal were also showing interested in landing the ace but unfortunately a deal was never finalised. Rodriguez is now on Jose Mourinho’s radar, and a move to Old Trafford could be on the cards when the transfer window finally opens at the end of the season, reports from Don Balon, claim that he has been asked to apply for both a Colombian and Spanish citizenship.
Journalist Eduardo Inda also claims that he will need to take an extra exam in order to get Spanish nationality, and added he would earn the necessary paperwork which will boost the hope of him joining United if he passes. Diario Gol also reckon that the United are currently waiting to see what the Premier League proposes when it’s new Brexit rules are announced before any move.
Personally, I think his pace, clever movement; brilliant technique and better-quality finishing would make him the perfect foil to the likes of Mata, Ibrahimović and Martial at United, and would still be a welcome addition at Arsenal.
