Is James Rodríguez on his way out of Real Madrid? It'd appear so, as more rumors indicate that big teams would be interested in his signing. While last week Paris Saint-Germain were the main club after James Rodríguez's signing, now it's the turn of Manchester United, who are expected to name José Mourinho as their coach this week.

Mourinho would have close to €230 million to spend this summer and he would be willing to use some of that money to sign James Rodríguez, who joined Real Madrid two years ago for €80 million. Reports suggest that Madrid don't want to part ways with the Colombian playmaker unless an offer matching those €80 million comes their way, something fairly unlikely given how this season has played out for James.

Even if James stays, he will most likely be a reserve player for Zinedine Zidane next season, as he is now behind both Isco Alarcón and Lucas Vázquez in the rotation.

Likelihood: 3/10
