David Beckham opens talks with James Rodriguez over Inter Miami transfer

Inter Miami chief David Beckham has reportedly contacted Real Madrid to ask about the availability of their forward James Rodriguez.

The Colombian, 28, has barely featured this season, and has scored just one La Liga goal.

He is not thought to be in Zinedine Zidane's plans, and it is thought the Frenchman has given permission for the player to move on.

With his contract due to expire next June Madrid are desperate to sell James in the near future so that they can recoup some of the £63m they splashed out on the player in 2014.

And according to Goal Beckham is keen on making James a marquee signing for his new franchise.

Miami lost their first two games of the MLS season before football was suspended amid the coronavirus crisis, and Beckham is aware of the need to bring in some new players.

He has a close relationship with Madrid president Florentino Perez, which could help in transfer negotiations, although he may face competition from the likes of Arsenal and Everton, who have also been linked with a move for James.

Colombia legend and former Newcastle forward Faustino Asprilla, meanwhile, recently urged James to seek a move to Beckham's former club Manchester United.

" Manchester United would be a good place for James," Asprilla told Blu Radio.

"It’s been a while since they have been winning trophies and they are thinking about strengthening the team for next season.
