Ivan Cordoba has backed his compatriot James Rodriguez to move to the Premier League this summer, amid speculation linking him to Manchester United.

Rodriguez has only made seven La Liga appearances this season, having failed to convince Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane of his worth.

His agent is attempting to facilitate a move away from the Spanish capital and has reportedly approached Manchester United over a potential deal.

And fellow Colombian and former Inter Milan defender Cordoba believes Rodriguez would thrive in England.

‘James Rodriguez is the best player for us Colombians,’ Cordoba told the Daily Mail.

‘It depends on him – he has everything he needs to do well. I wish James would go to England because there are so many interesting options for him.

‘James is already at one of the best teams in Real Madrid, but the Premier League would be a great destination.

‘Those who buy him will make an excellent choice. Selfishly, I hope to see him in Italy at my Inter. I hope that one day he can replace me as a Colombian footballer at the San Siro.’
