Jorge Garcia of Diario AS, a tabloid out of Spain, has linked Atletico Madrid midfielder/winger Cristian Rodriguez to a possible move to Rangers.
Welcome to the January transfer window!
Garcia reports that Rangers, along with Queen’s Park Rangers, have already submitted offers for the Uruguayan & that Rodriguez is giving serious thought to a move.
The 29-year old has earned 83 caps for Uruguay & has played for the likes of Paris St. Germain & Porto. He joined Atletico in 2012 but has struggled to hold down a regular place.
So far this season he has made six appearances in La Liga – all as a substitute. He has only managed one shot in the 63 minutes he has played. Even with the lack of playing time at the club level, he still is a regular at the national team level. He played in all four of Uruguay’s World Cup matches.
It is difficult to give such rumours much credence given the current state of affairs at Ibrox…but it is only the beginning of such talk —- given the current state of affairs at Ibrox.
