As Europe’s big guns get ready to return to football in their respective leagues, Spanish club, Real Madrid, are already doing the groundwork to see if they’re able to ship out one of their star footballers.
Colombian midfielder, James Rodriguez, has fallen out of favour under Zizou at the Santiago Bernabeu, and amid being valued in the region of £100m by La Liga giants at one point, it appears that they’re ready to take a loss on him in order to move him on this summer.
To that end, the Red Devils have been sounded out regarding the possibility of concluding a cut-price deal which could even be at less than half of Real’s previous valuation.
Having a footballer sat on the bench whilst earning a reported £250,000 per week, according to The Sun, helps neither Colombia international nor Real Madrid, so it would seem to be in their best interests to secure a deal for him.
However, the covid pandemic has hit every club hard financially and it’s debatable that Red Devils will have the money available even if they were interested. Everton are also interested in signing the 28-year-old playmaker during this summer transfer window.
