    I say he will fit in , he is a good footballer and he know his game. He just doesn't fit into ZZ's formation and also %90 of his goals are just beautiful

    James Rodriguez, Real Madrid's attacking midfielder, has reached an initial agreement to sign for Manchester United, according to Colombian radio station RCN.

    Journalist Antonio Casale, director of the programme En La Jugada (In the move), revealed that according to his sources, the player and his agent Jorge Mendes (who also represents Mourinho, the coach of Man Utd), met recently with Florentino Pérez to express James' dissatisfaction for his situation at the club and to show him the offers the player has on the table.

    .James ready to move to Manchester

    However the Real Madrid president urged them to wait until after the season has finished to take stock of the situation. This didn't go down well with James, who has now reached an initial agreement with United to swap Madrid for Manchester. All that's lacking is for Real Madrid to agree to the deal, once the Champions League final in Cardiff has been played.

    James lacking opportunities at Real Madrid

    James' lack of playing time saw the player thinking seriously about his future in December. However he finally decided to stay and attempt to convince Zidane of his place in the French coach's plans.

    .
    .And his performances recently are on his side, whether he stays or goes. Despite having played only 1,739 minutes, being 19th on the most used list, with only Casillas, Pepe, Mariano and Coentrao appearing less, he's scored 11 and set up 13.

    James: win LaLiga and the Champions League and then...

    James is focused, like the other players in the squad, in winning the double of LaLiga and the Duodécima, the 12th European Cup, a double Real Madrid haven't won since 1958. He's not going to let up his day to day work, but he's not happy with his situation at the club, and so he's looking to his future, a future that looks ever more likely to be in England...

    The future of Alvaro Morata appears more and more likely to be with the Rossoneri after he flew to Milan to seal the deal. Milan are ready to make the Real Madrid striker their headline summer signing and in Italy, they are taking for granted that there is an agreement between the club and the player, at a rate of 7.5 million euros per year.Following information published by MARCA on Wednesday, Milan and Morata have agreed on the terms of their contractual relationship, with only an agreement between the Italian club and Los Blancos missing. An offer around 60 million euros is forthcoming, but Madrid hope to get more, specifically between 70 and 75 million euros. It's worth remembering that Real paid just 30m euros last summer to re-sign the player from Juventus.The background to the possible transfer is Morata's underlying dissatisfaction with his current role at Real Madrid. Despite his remarkable level of performance - 20 goals in just 1,871 minutes, one more than Benzema in 3,162 - it's clear that Morata is the second choice for the centre-forward role. Benzema has been chosen by Zinedine Zidane in all of the major matches in 2016/17, as will occur again, unless there's a monumental surprise, in the Champions League final against Juventus. In Milan, the young Spaniard would be spearhead the attack for their return to Europe - albeit via the Europa League. New owner of the club, Li Yonghong, and coach Vincenzo Montella, appear to have lost confidence in the Colombian striker and ex-Sevilla player Carlos Bacca.



    Knows Serie A

    Although there is interest in Morata's services from the Premier League - Manchester United and Chelsea are known to have enquired - one of the factors that would persuade him to accept the offer of Milan is his good knowledge of Serie A. He played for two seasons at Juventus, the great dominator of Italian football in the last decade, and left a super impression. In his first season in Turin (2014/15) he scored 15 goals in 46 games.Among them were two that served to eliminate Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinals and another came in the final, which Juve lost to Barcelona. In the next campaign, 2015/16, he added 12 more goals and curiously his last came against Milan in the final of the Coppa Italia.


    World Cup year

    Another factor that weighs heavily on Morata's mind is that next season will be the warm up to World Cup 2018, a tournament for which the striker has high hopes. He's aware that he must grit his teeth to become the first choice striker ahead of Diego Costa, but also considers that to be able to fight for the position on an equal footing, he must be an indisputable starter for whichever club he's at. At Madrid, as has been proven this season, that has been difficult because of Zidane's preference for using BBC. In Milan, as the undisputed headliner, Morata would have everything in his favour to aim for a similar standing in Julen Lopetegui's squad.


    Tears in cibeles

    An indication of a possible exit was the attitude of the player in Cibeles, during the celebration of the 33rd LaLiga for Real Madrid. While the rest of his teammates enjoyed a party that was five years in the making, Morata was visibly upset.He didn't hide his tears during the celebration, an image that was captured by the numerous media that covered the crowded event.Personal issueAnother factor that contributes to reinforcing the choice of Milan, in particular, and of Italy, in general, has to do with his fiance, Alice Campello.She is Italian and, logically, sees the possibility of returning to her country of birth. The couple, moreover, have decided to get married soon and according to different media, the wedding will take place in Venice, her hometown, during June. If Morata's move to Milan is confirmed, the couple would settle in the capital of Lombardy to begin their new life. Morata usually dedicates each goal by forming the A of Alice with his fingers.
