Manchester United could be ready to end their pursuit of Porto winger James Rodriguez.

Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson is a long-term admirer of Rodriguez, but the Scot has previously admitted that the 21-year-old's asking price is too high.

According to the Daily Mail, the release clause in Rodriguez's contract was recently adjusted from £24m to £36m.

Rodriguez has scored five goals in eight Primeira Liga appearances this season.
