Manchester United are reportedly the favourites to sign James Rodriguez in the summer.
According to Rob Dawson of ESPN FC, the Colombian is set to depart Los Blancos at the end of the season and has become an option for the Old Trafford club.
The circumstances are said to be comparable to those that saw Angel Di Maria join United from Real in 2014 for what was a British record transfer fee.
As noted by Dawson, Rodriguez shares the same agent as Di Maria and United boss Jose Mourinho in Jorge Mendes.
What is more, Guillem Balague from 'Sky Sports' suggests that United is the only club that can sign James if he decides to leave Spain.
