There are reports that both Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez might be leaving Real Madrid in the summer.
It is believed that there is an agreement in place that will see Ronaldo leave Real Madrid for Paris Saint-Germain during the summer. However, the deal will depend on whether Paris Saint-Germain will pay the right amount of money and whether Madrid will be able to find a suitable replacement.
For some pundits, it is the lack of quality of replacements on the market that is currently hindering this move. We will have to wait for the Euros to be over to find out whether the Portuguese forward will be playing in Ligue 1 next season.
If Real Madrid do not find a suitable replacement, it is believed that they will be offering a new contract to Cristiano Ronaldo to keep him at the club for the rest of his career.
James Rodriguez has seen his playing time fall drastically under Zinedine Zidane and might be considering a move away from the Spanish side. He believes that the new formation favored by Zidane does not give him much room in the team and that he will be better off moving somewhere else.
There are rumors that Rodriguez might be favoring a move to Manchester United if ever he is going to leave Real Madrid. Indeed, with United just announcing that Mourinho might be taking charge of the club, this will be an ideal opportunity for Rodriguez to get a place in the team. The Red Devils certainly need midfielders at the moment, and the Colombia star will definitely be a good signing for the England side.
However, Rodriguez’s wife has been quoted as saying that she does not want to move abroad. She stated that she had settled well in Madrid and did not want to leave the city.
So far there is no concrete offer from Manchester United or any other club, and we will have to wait to find out where Rodriguez will be playing next season.
