Man Utd lead race for Real Madrid midfielder

Mourinho: Europa League more important than FA Cup

Manchester United have allegedly emerged as the frontrunners to sign Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez.

According to Don Balon, Arsenal are no longer the favourites to snap up the Colombia international because the London club are due to offload his compatriot David Ospina.

Ospina was said to be key to luring Rodriguez to the Emirates Stadium as he is the Real star’s brother-in-law, but the goalkeeper is joining Fenerbahce in the summer.

Red Devils are said to have moved into pole position to secure the 25-year-old’s services, with the forward now expected to snub the Gunners this summer.

Note that Rodriguez has made 27 appearances during this season, scoring 6 goals.
