Real Madrid's James Rodriguez linked with Manchester United

Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez has been linked with a move to Premier League side Manchester United.

The Colombian international returned to Spain, following a two-year loan spell at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, however he has consistently been linked with a move away from Zinedine Zidane's side.

Rodriguez was reported to be on the radar of Napoli in the summer, after Bayern rejected the chance to make his loan permanent, as part of a pre-agreed €42M deal.

He was included in Zidane's plans at the start of the 2019-20 season, however in recent weeks the French boss has opted to leave him out of the squad, even when fit.

According to reports in Spanish newspaper El Desmarque, he could now head to Old Trafford, potentially as part of a deal that sees Paul Pogba head in the opposite direction.

Zidane highlighted the former Juventus man as his main transfer target this summer, however no deal was struck with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, and he remained with the Red Devils.

That transfer could potentially be reopened in January, as Real Madrid look to dip into the winter market, with Pogba still on their list of options, alongside Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.
