Man United are reportedly closing in on FC Porto winger James Rodriguez with Old Trafford wide-man Nani set to leave the club this summer according to CalcioMercato.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been scouting 21 year old Colombian international Rodriguez for some months now and Man United may have to stump up as much as £36m to sign the in-form attacker.
Rodriguez helped his side to back to back domestic titles in his first two seasons at the Estadio Dragao, as well as a Europa League triumph, and has risen the bar further during the current campaign.
The youngster is one of the Primeira Liga’s top goalscorers and assist-makers to boot and is a player who has worked incredibly well with compatriot Radamel Falcao at national team level.
This source states that Nani could move to FC Porto in a swap deal and in many ways that may well suit all parties.
The Portuguese international has played a limited role in Man United’s first team picture this season, making just five Premier League starts thus far this season.
Ferguson may well be keen to add some real cutting edge on his flanks due to the fact that neither Luis Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young have provided much in this regard this term, indeed the pair have provided just seven assists and not a single goal between them in 29 Premier League appearances.
