Blockbuster Man United and Arsenal target subject of £71m PL bid

Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez has been the subject of a £71m bid from an unnamed Premier League side, according to Spanish outlet Marca (via the Daily Star.)

The 25-year old has fallen out of favour in the Spanish capital after a mammoth move from Monaco following his stunning exploits for Colombia at the 2014 World Cup.

As a result of being frozen out of proceedings under both Rafa Benitez and Zinedine Zidane, the ex-Porto playmaker has been linked with moves to both Manchester United and Arsenal.

The hugely ambitious West Ham United have also been linked with a move.

Now, according to the report, an English side have made a colossal bid for the Colombia star in a bid to convince Los Blancos to sell him.

Amid the vast array of illustrious attacking talent at Zidane’s disposal at the Santiago Bernabeu, an offer of such magnitude could tempt the Champions League winners into a blockbuster sale.
