A Special Talent: Manchester United given green light to pursue La Liga playmaker

Manchester United have been offered the services of Colombian international playmaker James Rodriguez according to reports in England.

British media outlet, The Daily Mail, reports:

Despite playing an important part in Real Madrid’s run-in, James Rodriguez is still set to be sold by the club at the end of the season and Manchester United are the lastest side he has been offered to.

The midfield playmaker has been the subject of constant speculation pertaining to a transfer since his form dipped after a first season at Real Madrid which showed great promise.

Rodriguez arrived after a brilliant World Cup in Brazil in 2014 and hit the ground running at El Bernabeu with 17 goals in 46 outings in his first season in Spain.

But he fell out of favour due to arguably inconsistent form over the next two years and hasn’t always been considered a first choice player.

But his for has improved sharply again this season and he’s hit 11 goals in 30 appearances with many of those strikes coming in the second half of the campaign.

There is little doubting the talent of the attacking midfielder and he can also play in several positions across the front line or in the number 10 position.

He has flair, pace and at just 25, years left at the top level. He could turn out to be a superb signing for Manchester United and would certainly please the fans.

Manchester United need more speed in their attack and Rodriguez could become a more robust and pacy proposition than a player like Juan Mata who could still leave United at the end of the season.

Manchester United fans: would James be a good acquisition or is he just an uber-expensive luxury?
