Real Madrid have offered Manchester United the chance to sign James Rodriguez according to reports.
ESPN claim that the European Champions have offered their former manager Jose Mourinho the opportunity to sign the Columbian, who looks destined to leave the club this summer.
The 25-year old former FC Porto star has fallen down the pecking order since his £70million transfer from AS Monaco in 2014 and has been linked with a £60million departure from the Bernabeu.
Arsenal are reportedly looking into signing the playmaker as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, while Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.
The article claims that officials at Old Trafford have asked their counterparts at Real Madrid to keep them informed of Rodriguez’s situation, and in similar circumstances to Angel Di Maria’s move to Manchester United, Los Blancos have made them aware he he is available.
Despite scoring seven goals in his last nine appearances, including two at the weekend against Granada, Rodriguez has often found himself on the bench for Real Madrid’s biggest games.
Rodriguez’s potential move to Old Trafford could be linked with David de Gea moving in the opposite direction. De Gea is reportedly on Real Madrid’s radar once again, two years after a move broke down at the last minute.
Manchester United are expected to splash the cash once again this summer. They apparently want to sign a defender, with Michael Keane being linked. They also need a new striker, and both an attacking and defensive midfielder to bolster the squad that currently lies in fifth place in the Premier League.
