The report claims that United have identified the exciting midfielder as a potential summer signing and are considering making a £25m bid for the player, who is apparently dubbed as the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’ due to his playing style.

The 20-year-old has become one of the most exciting talents in Portugal after making his Porto debut in 2010 and has gone on to make 66 appearances so far, scoring 19 goals. The Mail claim that Rodriguez has already indicated he would be open to a move to Old Trafford should the opportunity present itself.

It’s also suggested that United may be ready to sell Brazilian midfielder Anderson in order to fund a move for Rodriguez, with the 24-year-old struggling to make an impact since his move from Porto in 2007. Anderson has been plagued by injury problems this season and has been restricted to making just 11 starts this campaign, and Fergie may be ready to cut his loses on him.

    Definately!…the kid is talent personified!!…would also like to see Kagawa and Martinez follow along with Hazard, wouldnt touch Modric at the price that spurs are quoting (and certainly not at a price for a player that rarely scores!!)…next season
    De Gea
    Raphael, Hummels, Vidic, Baines
    Valencia, Martinez, Kagawa
    Hazard,Rooney & Rodriquez
