Man United weigh up a transfer move for out-of-favour La Liga superstar as Solskjaer worries about Lingard

James Rodriguez ended his successive loan-spells with Bayern Munich

Manchester United are weighing up a move for Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez, according to the Sun.

The Colombian international recently ended his two-season loan spell with the Bundesliga title winners and they were reluctant to extend his stay.

The 27-year-old fell down the pecking order of Zinedine Zidane years ago, which made him seek an exit to Germany.

And with the French manager once again taking the helm at Santiago Bernabeu, Rodriguez understands that he will once again be a misfit for the Los Blancos in the upcoming season.

Alongside the Red Devils, Premier League giants Liverpool and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the midfielder. Rodriguez amassed 15 goals and 14 assists for the Bavarians in the past two seasons across all competitions.

He signed for Los Blancos after an impressive display at World Cup 2014, eventually winning the Golden Boot.

United interested in Rodriguez

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is more concerned about Jesse Lingard right now after the English attacking midfielder endured an injury-laden season. Lingard’s impact at Old Trafford has constantly withered over past seasons as he has often struggled to find his form.

The Norwegian gaffer wants to recruit a playmaker for the upcoming season and although Rodriguez looks like a good option, his hefty price tag could prevent his move. The Red Devils would be expected to pay around £37million, the clause which was rejected by Bavarians.
