Déjà vu for Manchester United, as Bayern Munich have opened talks with James Rodriguez for a switch this summer.
The Red Devils are looking at a number of stars for a move this summer, and have been constantly linked with Real Madrid’s want-away James Rodriguez.
The Colombian international made a name for himself in the last World Cup in Brazil, and managed to earn a place at the Bernabeu. However, he has not been able to cement a place in the first team, even under current manager Zinedine Zidane.
The French manager is looking to add some quality to his first team next season, and this will push Rodriguez further down the pecking order, and it is understood that he is ready to quit the club this summer.
Manchester United have been extensively scouting the player for some time now, with reports also suggesting that the club has held talks with the player.
However, Colombian radio channel Blu Radio has thrown all such rumours into the waste basket, by claiming that the Red Devils are not interested in the 25-year-old at all.

He has played just 21 La Liga games this season, but has been effective in front of goal, and the radio channel has stated that his performances have caught the eye of one Bayern Munich in Germany. The German giants are also looking for some quality players, with their first team stars nearing the final years of their career.
However, it remains to be seen if James will get any more game time at the Allianz Arena next season.
