Manchester United could sign James Rodriguez after his agent, Jorge Mendes, requested Real Madrid part with the Colombia star.
That is according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, who say Mendes wants the player to move to Old Trafford.
Rodriguez has fallen down the pecking order under Zinedine Zidane this season, making just 32 appearances.
He appeared to wave goodbye to Real fans after their 4-1 home win over Sevilla earlier this month.
Real are playing hardball over his asking price, with United only willing to pay in the region of £52million for him.
But Mendes' intervention could see Jose Mourinho land his man.
