UNCOVERED: Super agent Mendes offered James to Man Utd, but...

Super agent Jorge Mendes has offered Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez to Manchester United.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for a creative midfielder in this window and has a number of options he is considering.

Colombian magazine Las 2 Orillas reports Mendes is trying to convince United vice-chairman Woodward to capture Rodriguez for that role.

But Solskjaer is completely against accepting the terms and it is solely the work of the agent trying to seek a huge payday.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has registered a slight interest in the 29-year-old but has yet to make a firm approach.
