Ivan Cordoba assumes that James Rodriguez can move to Inter and Manchester United ‘did not understand’ the potential of Romelu Lukaku.
The legend of Nerazzurri had a talk to the Sportsmail Daily Mail about the players like Lukaku and Ashley Young that were making a strong impression in San Siro.
Cordoba said “Lukaku is an extraordinary player. Manchester United did not understand the player’s potential and his last season was bad for him. In my opinion, Lukaku is proving everyone to be a champion”.
“He is determined and the Premier League has improved him a lot. I met him: he is a positive leader in the changing rooms. It’s a shame that Manchester United sold him, but I’m happy that Inter bought him. Antonio Conte has been fundamental to his form at Inter.
“Eriksen and Young are excellent players and will give determination and strength to Inter. I am happy that they chose Inter.”
James Rodriguez has been repeatedly linked to a move to Series A for Napoli, Juventus or Inter.
“James Rodriguez is the best player for us Colombians. It depends on him – he has everything he needs to do well. James is already at one of the best teams in Real Madrid, but the Premier League would be a great destination. Those who buy him will make an excellent choice.
“Selfishly, I hope to see him in Italy at my Inter. I hope that one day he can replace me as a Colombian footballer at the San Siro.”
