Real Madrid have offered Manchester United the chance to sign James Rodriguez, according to reports.
ESPN claim that United have been aware of the Colombia international’s availability and have requested that they are kept in the loop about the player’s situation.
Rodriguez, who was signed in a £63 million deal from Monaco after the 2014 World Cup, is expected to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer after struggling to secure a regular role under Zinedine Zidane.
The 25-year-old has started only 12 games in La Liga this season and has been benched for Madrid’s crucial fixtures against Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in recent weeks.
Earlier this week, reports in Spain claimed that Zidane has told Rodriguez that he is free to leave Madrid at the end of the season.
Two weeks ago, Rodriguez’s wife, Daniela Ospina, who is the sister of Arsenal keeper David, indicated that the midfielder may move clubs this summer.
‘James is very focused, it is a very personal decision,’ she said.
‘He is happy, but when he has to make the decision, he will do so.

‘I cannot promise anything, but James wants to continue with Real Madrid and I love Madrid too. I am really happy in Spain and I want to stay here.
‘He is super happy, always working and trying to improve himself, to do what he has to do.
‘Obviously I want him to play more, to say that wouldn’t be a lie.’
