As has happened several times this summer, the Madrid media have decided James is being pushed toward the exit, and once again Manchester United are one of the clubs picked as a possibility.
There’s several factors making Real Madrid edge toward a sale. The player’s attitude, his form, and others merging at the club have all combined to present the possibility of a sale.
The big problem is Real Madrid finding a buyer, especially given that Marca say they want to recoup €75m. That’s a little cheeky, given the concerns over James and whether he can again hit the highest heights again.
As it stands there doesn’t appear to be a great deal of genuine interest in the 25 year old, and surely the only way Manchester United make a move is if agent Jorge Mendes manages to convince Jose Mourinho and Edward Woodward.
It’s a long shot, because Manchester United aren’t really crying out for a player like James, and Mourinho surely wouldn’t be keen given the concerns about his attitude.
