Manchester United will target James Rodriguez once a deal for his Real Madrid team-mate Alvaro Morata is complete, according to reports in Spain.

Diario Madrista, as quoted by the Daily Express, claim that Manchester United will look to sign the Colombian once the Red Devils have concluded a deal for Morata.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move to sign the South American midfielder over the past couple of months but other players have since emerged as more important targets for Mourinho.

The Red Devils reached an agreement to sign Sweden international Victor Lindelof from Portuguese club Benfica on Saturday.

The 20-time English champions haven’t won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Mourinho’s big challenge next term will be transforming the Red Devils into title contenders.

Chelsea won the Premier League crown in their first season under Antonio Conte as Manchester United could only muster a sixth-place finish.

The Red Devils did win the EFL Cup and Europa League under Mourinho.
