Real Madrid will encourage Manchester United to bid for James

Manchester United are set to be offered Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez.

Sport says Real are considering cashing in on the Colombia international.

Mesut Ozil was sold to Arsenal after he failed to consistently perform at the Bernabeu and bigwig Florentino Perez is pondering similar action.

Forward James has still managed eight assists and four goals in 16 appearances this season despite criticism over his performances.

There were several claims last month that Manchester United have held talks with his agent Jorge Mendes about a possible deal.
