AS Monaco winger James Rodriguez is keen to move to England.

The Daily Express says Manchester United and Tottenham are on alert after Colombian winger Rodriguez admitted he is keen on a greater challenge after his first season at Monaco.

Reports in Portugal suggest that Rodriguez - who made his name at Porto - has set his heart on a move away before the start of next summer.

Indeed, it is thought that Rodriguez is not enamoured with the idea of playing under new Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim - who has replaced Claudio Ranieri at the Principality club - and will now push for a move away.

Specifically, Rodriguez now wants to test himself in either England or Italy.
