Premier League giants Manchester United have received a big boost over their long-term transfer target ahead of the upcoming transfer window scheduled to start as from the 1st of January.
This is due to widespread media reports that German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich won’t sign Colombian international playmaker James Rodriguez permanently at the end of his two-year loan deal with the Bavarian giants.
He was recently part of the Colombia squad that didn’t make it past the first knockout stage at this summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Colombia were knocked out by England via penalties in the round of 16.

James Rodriguez is currently a Bayern Munich player after he signed for the five-time European champions on a two-year loan deal from European champions Real Madrid.
He had a very good first season and that prompted talks of a permanent deal to the Allianz Arena.
That has however changed in the new season after he fell out with Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac.
The former AS Monaco and FC Porto player has questioned his lack of game time with Bayern Munich since the Croatian tactician took over in the summer.
Manchester United are long-term admirers and they could make a move for him in the New Year.
