Manchester United and Chelsea have approached James Rodriguez

The Italian journalist also says Serie A giants Inter Milan have approached the Real Madrid playmaker.

Rodriguez looked certain to leave the Bernabeu over the summer but had a mini-revival under Zinedine Zidane at the start of the season.

However, he’s back on the bench and clubs are starting to think they might be able to lure him away from the Spanish capital.

Palmeri tweeted: “Clubs that have contacted recently James Rodriguez: Chelsea, Inter, Manchester United.”

United are long-term suitors for Rodriguez while Chelsea have arrived on the scene recently.

James Rodriguez has been struggling for game time at Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho shares his agent Jorge Mendes with the 25-year-old and that is thought to be a big bargaining tool for United.

However, Mourinho’s men don’t appear to be prepared to pay the massive asking price on Rodriguez’s head.

Real signed him for £60m two-and-a-half years ago and want to recoup that investment.

Recent reports linking Chelsea with a swoop have indicated Antonio Conte will have to fork out £75m to get a deal done.
