The Colombia international continues to be heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, but is currently training to impress in La Liga

James Rodriguez has been catching the eye in Real Madrid training as he continues to be linked with a big-money move to Manchester United.

The Colombia international has struggled for regular game time this season, with starting berths hard to come by at Santiago Bernabeu.

James has, however, impressed when called upon by Zinedine Zidane and remains a playmaker of some repute.

It is creative ability which has carried him to the top of the game, but the 25-year-old also knows his way to goal.

If United manager Jose Mourinho has been keeping a close eye on James’s situation in Spain, then he is likely to have been impressed by that spectacular strike.

The Red Devils have been short on firepower this season, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading their scoring charts on 28 before picking up a season-ending injury.

Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have all made it into double figures, but added quality in the final third would not go amiss.

Reports suggest that James could be among those drafted in, with the South American prepared to leave La Liga in pursuit of the minutes his undoubted ability deserves.
