Betting suspended on Real Madrid ace heading to Man United

| 16.05.2017

There’s exciting news for Manchester United fans right now, with the signing of James Rodriguez reportedly set to be announced this weekend. And our traders are so sure of it that they’ve suspended betting on the Colombian joining the club.

The 25-year-old joined Real Madrid from Monaco in 2014, but has struggled to secure a firm spot since Zinedine Zidane took over as boss, starting just 14 games in La Liga this term.

But there’s no doubt he possesses the quality to seriously improve the Red Devils side, with the versatile midfielder-cum-winger, chalking up 36 goals and 41 assists in 136 games with Los Blancos.

A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Rodriguez joining United looks like a certainty, so all we’re waiting for now is the sight of the midfield maestro posing with the famous red shirt.”

So, United fans: do you think James could be the key to your side challenging for the Premier League title next year?
