With the transfer speculation starting to ramp up as we`re enter the period midway between the January transfer window closing and the summer window opening, two pieces of speculation have grabbed my attention today.

The first, coming courtesy of the Express, infers that Manchester United are showing a serious interest in the highly rated Real Madrid striker James Rodriguez.

Since moving to the Bernabeu Stadium, the 24-year-old Colombian striker hasn`t had the best of times, however, that hasn`t stopped Real Madrid banging a huge £60 million fee on the players head

The second piece of transfer speculation that grabbed my attention relates to somebody Manchester United have been linked with several times.

This time the Italian media vehicle, Tuttomercatoweb, is suggesting that Gareth Bale is set to turn down a new Real Madrid contract with our source suggesting that he`d prefer a move to Manchester, to play for either Manchester United or Manchester City. Now I wonder who, given the chance to choose, the 26-year-old would opt to play for.

Two interesting pieces of gossip, but what are your views on the duo?
