Real Madrid step up chase to sign £30m Man United target

Real Madrid are ready to table a £30million bid in their efforts to sign Manchester United target Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsburg, Express reports.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford ever since his performance for the Switzerland national team during the World Cup back in 2014.

Despite only recently signing a new contract which could see him remain until at least 2019, the La Liga giants are still looking to lure him away from Germany in the upcoming January window.

United boss Louis van Gaal is said to be keen on the services of the left-back given the long-term injury to Luke Shaw as he looks to add more options into his defence.

Shaw suffered a double leg fracture earlier in the campaign and is not expected to return to full fitness until closer to the end of the season.

Rodriguez is highly rated given his form in recent months, featuring 12 times in the Bundesliga this term, scoring two goals while providing another one assist so far.
