Adidas willing to help Man Utd cover James wages to clinch move

Adidas are willing to help Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez find himself a Premier League club.

The Colombian has been linked with Manchester United this week.

His agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Jose Mourinho and David de Gea, wants the deal to be supplemented by Adidas.

The Mirror says the club's sponsor will help pay 20 per cent of his wages through their own marketing, image rights and shirt sales.

James has hopes of announcing a deal with United before the beginning of next week.
