Real Madrid star James Rodriguez is reportedly nearing a move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils have courted the Colombia star for several years, though snubbed chances to sign him in 2010 and 2013.

However, Spanish outlet Diario Gol claims there is a high possibility of a move happening this transfer window.

Talks between Rodriguez and United have gone well and all that remains is for the Jose Mourinho’s side to meet Real’s asking price.

Yet the La Liga winners are reluctant to let him go cheaply and the report says United may need to cough up as much as £70m to snap him up.
