Manchester United are in advanced negotiations to sign James Rodriguez from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Red Devils have “stepped up” talks to try and sign the 25-year-old Colombian this summer.

The same report claims that Rodriguez would likely cost less than Alvaro Morata, who has been heavily linked with a big-money move to Old Trafford throughout the summer.

The story also suggests that Real Madrid are likely to want a fee in the region of €70m for Rodriguez this summer if they are to let the midfielder leave The Bernabeu.

Manchester United have been linked with a host of players this summer including Morata, but the Red Devils confirmed on Saturday morning that they had agreed a fee with Everton to sign striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Red Devils jetted off to the United States for their pre-season tour on Sunday as Jose Mourinho prepares for his second season in charge at the Old Trafford club.

Manchester United will make a return to the Champions League next season after they won the Europa League last term.
