Manchester United have reportedly held talks with midfielder James Rodriguez over a possible transfer from Real Madrid, according to the Daily Express.
Spanish publication Fichajes claim that the Red Devils have reached out to super agent Jorge Mendes to discuss a potential move in the near future.
The report claims that the Colombian international would be open to an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu after apparently falling out with manager Rafa Benitez.
Rodriguez has missed the majority of this season through injury, making just one start and a further two appearances from the bench, but has generally impressed since joining the club by notching 17 goals and 18 assists so far (via Express).
The 24-year-old saw his stock go stratospheric at the 2014 World Cup, where he helped Colombia put on an impressive show before crashing out to hosts Brazil at the Quarter-Final stage.
However, no fee has been mentioned in either report, but considering Real spent £63million on his signature from Monaco (via Guardian) they may have to stump up some serious cash to prize him away as he is still under contract until 2020 (via Transfermarkt).
