Euro giants allow Man United a free run at World Cup sensation

Real Madrid are ready to give Manchester United a free run at signing James Rodriguez, according to the Metro.

The Red Devils have infamously struggled to land big names over the past two years, having failed to sign the likes of Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo so far.

However, reports suggest that Los Blancos could give Ed Woodward and company a free run at the Colombian playmaker in what would be a mega deal for the Old Trafford club.

Those behind the scenes in the Spanish capital are said to be disappointed in the 24-year old’s recent behaviour, having been caught by police speeding at 125 mph on his way into training.

Despite being one of the finest attackers in world football, the former Monaco man is thought to be considered as expendable by the La Liga giants as they are concerned over the image he has brought to the club.
