Jorge Mendes, the agent of James Rodriguez, is reportedly looking for clubs which will agree to a deal for his client being part-funded by personal kit sponsors Adidas.

Any club that signs James Rodriguez this summer will have to accept that the deal will be part-funded by Adidas, according to reports.

The Colombia international has only played a bit-part role at Real Madrid this season and is said to be pushing for a departure from the Bernabeu.

According to The Sun, agent Jorge Mendes is looking for an English club with the agreement that, if he signs it will be part-funded by the player's personal kit sponsors.

The report goes on to say that the German sportswear firm will pay 20% of Rodriguez's wages through its own marketing, image rights and shirt sales.

Manchester United are said to be in pole position to recruit the 25-year-old, but it is believed that he is holding fire until he knows whether they will be playing in the Champions League next season.
