James Rodriguez: Porto winger is reportedly on Manchester United's radar
The agent of Porto winger James Rodriguez has admitted it is a complicated situation as he prepares to hold talks with the club, with speculation continuing to link the Colombian with a move to Manchester United.
Rodriguez is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in the game after a couple of impressive seasons with Porto and fresh reports have suggested that he is attracting the attention of other clubs.
United are understood to be keeping tabs on his situation and stories in the Portuguese press claim they have made an offer to Porto which has been rejected.
Rodriguez is thought to have a release clause of around £40million in the contract he signed only last year and Porto are standing firm as they want a good price for the 20-year-old.
Rodriguez's representative, Silvio Sandri, has remained coy about his client's future after being quizzed on the subject, but says he will be speaking to Porto soon.
"Really there does not exist any big news about this but it is a subject we need to analyse," Sandri is quoted as saying in O Jogo.
"In a couple of weeks I will fly to Portugal and I expect to have a meeting with the Porto directors to discuss the situation.
"I cannot offer more details because it is a very complex subject."
