Manchester United transfer news: Red Devils interested in Switzerland defender Ricardo Rodriguez
Wolfsburg defender has impressed at the World Cup
Tuesday 08 July 2014
Manchester United are showing an interest in Wolfsburg left back Ricardo Rodriguez.
Patrice Evra is being linked with a move to Juventus and should he leave Louis van Gaal wants competition for new left back Luke Shaw, according to the Daily Mail.
Liverpool and Tottenham are also said to be interested in the 21-year-old.
Rodriguez started all four games for Ottmar Hitzfeld as Switzerland went through the groups before losing a very tight last-16 tie to Argentina.
Born in Zurich to a Spanish father and Chilean mother, Rodriguez moved to Wolfsburg from FC Zurich in January 2012 for around £7.5m.
He was a brilliant attacking threat in the Bundesliga last season, scoring five goals and adding nine assists as Wolfsburg finished fifth.
Rodriguez, who has 22 caps for Switzerland, was also part of the Swiss Under-17 team that won the World Cup in 2009.
