James Rodriguez career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of James Rodriguez shows one of the best young players in the game, already a world class attacking midfielder at the age of 21. Monaco have just bought him from Porto so signing him right away is not an option. Don’t expect to get him for a cheap fee later in the game either, Monaco won’t sell him easily.
He ended up at Manchester United in my test save after several great seasons in France. Unfortunately he suffered a severe injury in England and his debut season was compromised. Nevertheless, his future profile shows a great number 10, decent on the physical side but absolutely brilliant when it comes to technique and creativity.
