Reports from Spain have claimed that Real Madrid midfielder, James Rodriguez has reportedly kicked off preparations for a move to Manchester United.
According to the reports, Rodriguez is stepping up his preparations for a move away from the Bernabeu by kicking off house in Manchester.
It is said that the Colombian is presently looking through a real estate company’s catalogue of homes in the ‘Golden Triangle’ near Manchester.
The playmaker’s name was said to have been high on the wish list of Manchester United’s new manager, Jose Mourinho when he took the job at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese tactician reportedly asked his agent, Jorge Mendes – who also manages Rodriguez – to help him make a deal happen.
The report states that the 24-year-old has fallen out with the Madrid hierarchy after Mendes asked for a new contract for his client – a request that was quickly denied.
United is yet to make an offer for the Colombian but Spanish media say that Real knows the player will leave this summer and it could be in a deal worth £30m.
