The 22-year-old has recently emerged as one of the best young defenders in Europe with some superb attack-minded performances from the back last season.

Rodriguez’s form attracted some interest from top clubs over the summer, though a move never materialised, but he could become the focus of United’s attention again in the next transfer window as Louis van Gaal continues to chase new additions in the left-back position.

The Dutchman already signed the likes of Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind this summer, with all three players able to fill in in that role if needed, though with Rojo used mainly at centre-back and Blind in midfield, it could be that Rodriguez will come in to challenge Shaw for his place in the side.

The Swiss international is great going forward and has proven himself at the top level with some fine displays in the German top flight and with his national side, whom he represented in this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil, reaching the quarter-finals of the competition.
