The midfield maestro is believed to be in search of more regular first-team football, having just appeared 22 times in the league for Los Blancos last season. The player’s agent has reportedly approached several European giants for a potential move.
The Galacticos star has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea and Manchester United looking like potential destinations. Meanwhile, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, and Inter Milan are also reportedly interested in availing the Colombian International’s services.
The 25-year-old had taken La Liga by storm following his arrival at the Spanish capital. The versatile performer once used to be the heart of Madrid’s creative core, but now, he no longer seems to be a part Zinedine Zidane’s plans for the club anymore.
Interestingly, Liverpool seem to be interested in having the Colombian playmaker as a midfield partner for Jordan Henderson, but they are sure to face immense competition for his services from all over Europe.
However, Sport believes that Jurgen Klopp is seemingly unwilling to meet Real’s price tag of £66 million, especially when a defensive midfielder is their top priority this summer.
Meanwhile, the imminent arrival of Real Betis star Dani Ceballos spells more trouble for James, as it would further restrict his playing time for Real. The player and his representatives are in talks with several clubs currently, as Rodriguez looks for better first-team action next season.
