Real Madrid Star James Rodriguez In Old Trafford Talks?

The right full back has struggled for game time under Zinedine Zidane last season and the latest reports from Spain suggest he is desperate to leave the club with Chelsea a potential destination. 'Wazza' is set for a return to his former boyhood club Everton in the summer, with the Toffees already reported to have agreed terms with our leading goal-scorer over a £250,000-per-week wage (The Telegraph).

Further reports also claim that Chelsea could find it tough to land the Colombian despite an offer, as he prefers a move to Jose Mourinho's side.

According to Spanish publication Don Balon, Antonio Conte's side are interested in the Colombian, who wants an exit from Santiago Bernabeu in order to play regular football with an eye for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Despite scoring 20 goals for Los Blancos last season, Chelsea seem to be no longer interested in Morata as they feel he is bound for United; with the player also telling his agent to "do everything possible to complete the switch".

Rodriguez has spent the last three seasons at the La Liga giants, having joined from Monaco in 2014, but his first-team opportunities have lessened under Zinedine Zidane leading the Colombia worldwide to look at other options this summer.

James joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2014 from Monaco, following an excellent FIFA World Cup 2014, for £71million and Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen on recouping as much as possible from his sale.
