Porto hitman fancies United switch

Porto winger James Rodriguez has revealed his interest in move to Manchester United.

The 20-year-old has netted 11 goals in 11 starts for Porto this season, and is considered one of the brightest young talents in European football.

Already capped four times by Colombia, Rodriguez believes a move to the Premier League champions would be right up his street.

"For now, I keep thinking about Porto and about winning the Portuguese Liga title here," he told

"I feel very happy here, but if you give me the option to go to United, I am not going to deny that I would like to play at a like club that."

Rodriguez is the club's top scorer this season, ahead of fellow forward Hulk, who has a much-reported £85 million minimum fee release clause in his contract.

The former Banfield starlet failed to make an impact when taking on United's neighbours Manchester City in the Europa League, which saw City win 6-2 on aggregate after an emphatic second leg victory.

Rodriguez struck decisively in the O Classico meeting with Benfica at the weekend though, which saw Porto reclaim top spot in Primera Liga.

However, the club have failed on the continent, and crashed out of the Champions League in a group containing APOEL Nicosia, Zenit St. Petersburg and Shakhtar Donstsk.
