Rodriguez returned to Los Blancos after a two-year loan with Bayern Munich but he has failed to establish himself with just five starts in all competitions.

According to El Desmarque, the Bernabeu giants are likely to part ways with Rodriguez in the New Year and he could be the subject of interest from the English top-flight.

United are on the look out for an attacking addition at the turn of the year after struggling to score more than once in most of their Premier League games this term.

Spurs, meanwhile, are bracing for the potential departure of
Christian Eriksen
and Rodriguez could act as a direct replacement for the former Ajax graduate.

Rodriguez was previously offered to United in a player-plus-cash deal for
Paul Pogba
over the summer but the package was snubbed with them holding no ambition of selling their midfielder.

How Spurs could line up against Sheff Utd with Lo Celso set to be rested after brilliant display vs Red Star Belgrade

GIOVANI LO CELSO is expected to return to Tottenham's bench at the weekend as Mauricio Pochettino rotates his squad.

The £55million Argentine, 23, was in sparkling form as he made his full debut against Red Star Belgrade - scoring in the 4-0 rout.


But Pochettino is afraid of overworking his players as surprise package Sheffield Wednesday travel to Spurs tomorrow.

He said: “I need to assess tomorrow morning, it is a short time to recover.

“Some players suffer small issues and we have three games in six days. I still need to decide the team for tomorrow.”

Christian Eriksen came off the bench to score the fourth against Red Star but his strike cannot gloss over a poor season overall from the wantaway ace.

Speaking after the Champions League triumph, Lo Celso claimed he is finally hitting his groove after injury hampered the start of his Spurs career.

He said: “I have been waiting a lot after I got injured, but I am enjoying this moment and would like to thank my team-mates and the staff.

“I am starting to adapt well. I had a small problem with the injury with the national team, but I am back and more importantly I now feel well and have completed my first game for the club.”

Fans are keen to see Lo Celso given another chance to impress but Eriksen is likely to join two-goal Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Dele Alli in attack.

Harry Winks could also return, with Toby Alderweireld - who has played every minute in the league - coming back into the defence.

But Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and Jan Vertonghen have been ruled out.

Tottenham v Sheffield United: match preview

On the back of a convincing Champions League win in midweek, Tottenham would normally view the visit of a promoted team as a home banker. Spurs might have beaten Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday but they have not won consecutive games since April, their league results have been poor and Sheffield United, unbeaten away from home this season, arrive as the form team. Would something for the Blades even count as a shock?. David Hytner
