Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez admitted he is interested in a summer transfer to the Premier League as his time with Los Blancos draws to a close.
The 29-year-old has been frozen out by Zinedine Zidane this campaign, starting just five times in La Liga and netting once.
He moved to the Santiago Bernabeu outfit six years ago but spent two seasons on loan at Bayern Munich before returning to the parent club last season.
However, he’ll now look to end his association with La Liga giants, who are willing to sell the South American for a bargain £23 million.
Arsenal are understood to be showing ‘the most’ interest in the Colombia playmaker, while his agents held talks with Manchester United chiefs
Last week there were reports from Mundo Deportivo that his agent Jorge Mendes was attempting to encourage him to accept an offer from the Red Devils, so this should be especially interesting to their supporters.
Now the former AS Monaco and Porto ace has publicly revealed that he’d be keen on a move to these shores.
‘I’ve already been in several good leagues and the only thing missing is Serie A and the Premier League, you have to see where I want to go or where they want me to go. Going to England would be a good thing, it’s a top league.’ James said on Daniel Habif’s podcast.
Meantime, Leeds United are allegedly interested in a summer deal for Benfica youngster Florentino Luis.
The 20-year-old midfielder – thought at one stage to be a target for Manchester United – continues to be mentioned with a move away from his Portuguese club ahead of the 2020-21 term.
