United Open Talks Over Rodriguez Swap Deal

By on February 22, 2013

Despite the transfer window now being closed there will still be plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Man Utd are linked with a swap deal involving James Rodriguez and Nani.

Porto James Rodriguez

Manchester United have opened talks with Porto over a possible summer swap deal involving James Rodriguez and unsettled winger Nani, according to the Metro.

Colombian winger Rodriguez has been in excellent form this season, scoring 7 goals in 11 league appearances, and is looked upon as one of the finest young prospects in Europe.

The Metro claims Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken directly with Porto officials about the possibility of a swap deal involving the 20-year-old and out-of-favour winger Nani, with the United boss keen to freshen up his squad this summer.

The report suggests Nani could be on his way out of the club at the end of the season after falling out-of-favour with Ferguson over a contract extension, and he could be followed out the Old Trafford exit door by the likes of Patrice Evra, Kiko Macheda and Bebe, with Rodrguez potentially joining Wilfred Zaha as part of United’s new-look attack next season.

Fergie told Sky Sports on Friday that he’d like to keep hold of Nani but insists the 26-year-old’s form will dictate whether he regains his first team place or not. However, a move in the summer looks increasingly likely and if United could engineer a swap deal with Rodriguez it could prove to be an excellent piece of business.

    Are you kidding? Valencia was our best player last season. He performed so brilliantly and consistently throughout the entire season. He is loyal to the club and nobody could ever doubt his devotion. Nani hasn’t had a single consistent season for united and he is constantly whining and has showed a bad attitude several times. You wanna keep Nani over Valencia? You can join Nani at another club as far as I’m concerned. Valencia > Rodriguez > Nani > Stupid “fans”
