Manchester United Agree Deal 'in Principle' to Sign Real Madrid Attacking Star

The Colombian star seemed to be unsettled at Real Madrid.

In his 12 appearances for his club, he has scored eight goals and assisted another six and this has attracted the attention of some major European clubs including Chelsea, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

Los Blancos signed Rodriguez from Monaco for €80 million after his sensational performance in the 2014 World Cup.

Despite superstar Gareth Bale being hit by numerous injuries this season, Rodriguez has been able to cement a first-team spot under Zinedine Zidane.

Graham Robers has stated that he can not see Real Madrid ace Gareth Bale attending Tottenham's clash against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

United are aware of the interest from Madrid and manager Jose Mourinho has spoken with his player to make sure he is still focused on performing this season.

Rooney now occupies that shirt number at United but is expected to call time on his 13-year stint at Old Trafford this summer having already received a lucrative offer from the Chinese Super League.

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' easily slays box office rivals
The Guardians of the Galaxy have kicked off the summer with an out-of-this-world debut at the US box office. The first Guardians of the Galaxy debuted to $94.3 million, which was a good bit higher than expected then.

As it stands, the former Atletico Madrid player has two years left on his current contract, and there is an option to extend the deal by a year.

Rodriguez would prefer a move to Old Trafford, but his move could hinge on them qualifying for the Champions League.

Manchester United are looking to add a couple of stars to their rank in the forthcoming summer transfer window.

And should United win the Europa League this month, the United boss is also hoping to mount a serious challenge in the Champions League.

If the attacking midfielder moves to United next season, there will be quite a competition for spots.

The 26-year-old grew up the ranks at Real's city rivals Atletico before completing the move to Manchester United in 2011.
